Insurance companies are like that. When I was diagnosed my doctor started me on something he had as samples in his office but my insurance wouldn't pay so he opted for something simular to it and it worked for me. Ask the doctor if there is something simular to it that the insurance will pay for. Most insurance comapies have a formulary that show which drug they cover see if you can get it from them then work with the doctor. I don't know that much about the different drugs but the doctor or the pharmacist would. May not be anything simular to this drug he wants you to take, but doesn't hurt to ask.

I am so sorry that your going thrue this
Ins comps will do what they think is best to them.
Unless your willing to take them to court theres no much you can do
Best wishes
