Hello Mr. Saunders,
The reason why I am writing is about the medication, Vaniqa. Approximately 10 years ago, I complained to my dermatologist about hairs on my chin and ingrown hairs /pustules and she recommended the medication, Vaniqa. Naturally it was not a covered drug in my prescription plan, but my dermatologist wrote a letter and so did I, and back in 2012 (someone must have been asleep at the switch and covered it). I used it and it actually worked. I still had to pluck hairs from my chin with my tweezer, but the pustules seemed to have been alleviated. When everything started to clear up on my chin, I decided to forgo using it and see how it went. I went without it for several years and then realized that the pustules were coming back and I was back to square one. Regarding insurance, they say that this medication is used for cosmetic purposes, but for that matter so are all the meds for acne and pimples. I cannot understand why your company does not solicit/lobby all the drug insurance companies and explain the uses of this medication so it becomes a covered medication and thus available to more people. At this point, I will purchase it, but there are so many people, probably women, who cannot afford this medication and it is just not fair to women who need it but the price is beyond their means.
I hope you and your company can work harder and can succeed in convincing the drug insurance companies to cover it.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
