I had my first reclast infusion on 2/5- after I was assured by the infusion center that it was covered by my new Aetna Medicare Open plan.
I just got my explanation of benefits from Aetna- they have denied the entire claim ($2044 for the Reclast and $235 for the infusion) because it was "experimental". They say that since i did not agree in writing to pay whatever they denied prior to the infusion that I am not responsible for anything.
I was a little surprised to read that they consider this to be experimental. Just in case anyone else is looking at getting this make sure you check with your insurance company first.
By the way- after having very bad 'flu like" symptoms on days 2 & 3 I have not had any other side effects from the infusion.
