In Office Medication Therapies

The following is a list of medications we use. The process of getting prior authorization for these medications is a difficult one that we manage with the help of our patients. Often, pharmaceutical companies offer support to help patients through the prior authorization process. Some offer support as patients transition from one insurer to another. We have provided links to sites that give helpful information for patients.

Medical information on many of these therapies can be found at rheumatology.org.
