I'm switching from bcbs to medicare in a few months and my Neurologist and I have discussed changing my medication to Ocrevus. Ocrevus does not seem to be covered by any of the medicare advantage plans I have researched. Is this because it is too new to have made it into their formularies? Is it because it's an infusion drug instead of a patient administered drug? Is there anyone on this forum who has medicare and gets their Ocrevus covered? I have to pick a plan. in the next few months and I don't want to choose wrong.

Good luck. I recently switched from BCBS and my new insurance company does not want to cover the Rebif that I take 3 times a week. They would prefer that I take Aubagio which I've never had
