Appeals

If your office has prescribed Rituxan® (rituximab) for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), but your patient’s insurer has denied coverage, you can appeal that decision. Genentech Rheumatology Access Solutions might be able to help you as you resolve the situation. Here is what you can do:

  1. Understand why the request or claim has been denied. This should be in the insurer’s letter of denial or the patient’s Explanation of Benefits (EOB) letter.
  2. Contact Genentech Rheumatology Access Solutions for guidance as you put together an appeal. Use these resources to help you gather the documents and information you need for a successful appeal.
  3. Complete and submit the required forms and documents to the insurer before the appeal deadline. Genentech Rheumatology Access Solutions can provide information about this process.
