    When are you people going to get the facts straight? BC/BS reiterated that Acthar Gel is not indicated for steroid responsive immune disorders, only for non responsive to steroid disorders such as MS. All indications will usually require pre-authorization as any upper tier drug presently does. So instead of feeding into the short frenzy why not get your facts in place. A recent article by Fools indicated that the company produces nutritional supplements...does anyone read thefacts or is everyone just a big Fool?
