Should health insurance plans be required to cover MS drugs?

Insurers in Washington are looking for ways to cut the cost of their individual plans. One option is to remove brand name drug coverage. Premera did that in its Lifewise catastrophic plan a few years ago, and when Regence and Group Health tried to counter by doing the same, the Insurance Commissioner's office stepped in to say that access to at least some brand name drugs must be available for those that need them.

To learn more about this trend, check out this recent article that cites the high cost of MS drugs as a reason why people need insurance coverage.
