Michelle Vogel is vice president of patient advocacy and provider relations at CSI Pharmacy, a provider of specialized home infusion services. As a patient advocate, she is well aware of the challenges patients often face in gaining access to the medications their doctors prescribe.
Many of the medications myositis patients are prescribed, including IVIg and the newer biologics, are very expensive and only available through specialty pharmacies. Claims for coverage of these medications and even some procedures are increasingly being denied by insurance companies and drug plans.
Much of Michelle’s job is related to advocating for patients with rare and genetic disorders to ensure they have access to and reimbursement for lifesaving biotherapeutics. She has worked with TMA for many years offering advice to our members about how they can access the therapies their doctor prescribes.
