Our health insurance denied covering the muguard because they said it was not medically necessary. If I wa a mean spirited person I would like that clinical pharmadist who  made that decission find out one day what is like having your mouth and throat nuked. I sure than it would be "medically necessary" At least the cancer center has supplied us with it anyway

online....or have your Onc prescribe it.  They will call you and dicker and deal with you.  They told me it was $358 for it....when I gasped, they dropped the price to $100.  Another person on here told me I should have gasped twice like he did....he only paid $50 for  6 bottles.  MuGard is really only expensive for the insurance companies....cuz they pay the full price.  So far I haven't heard of anybody having to do that here.

Sue,

My insurance company did the same thing !  Talk w/your oncology nurse....sometimes they have the stuff to hand out.  I used the stuff regularly and it didn't really help.  I ended up w/crappy side effects and hospitalized.  Other's have benefitted from it's use.  There are some people in the world that just have NO...zip...nadda bed side manners.  I wonder how they get along with themselves....but in the end they will have to answer to a higher power.  Good luck, let us know if you get this resolved !   Katie

Covered mine but there was going to be a $100 copay.  Told the company guy I couldn't afford it and they waived it.  

I actually like the stuff.  It lasts longer than miracle mouthwash.

...but they already said it! Mugard is trying to get the word out, I think, and I'm glad because I think it makes a big difference! I should look into ways to petition insurance firms to change their position on it.

Sue,

 

Insurance did not cover my Magic Mouth Wash, but the formula they use in Oregon is so good I am surprised the rest of the country doesn’t know about it (Matt is biased).

 

Never tried the Muguard, but I know Phrannie liked it and had good luck.  As for the miracle mouthwash, never heard of it, I can’t comment on something I know nothing about.

 

Best,

 

Matt

Here is MA insurance is very picky. The hospital is great though, they will give all that we need.

Thanks, I need to put a newer pic of her, she's changed a lot in 3 months
