Here is My Question:
Are chemotherapy medications added to Tysabri for infusion? I noticed on my medical statements we are being charged for it.
You should call your infusion center billing office to get more information on their billing procedures. Many centers bill infusions of all types, including steroid infusions, under a chemotherapy infusion code and this can be confusing when you receive the bill. This doesn’t mean that you are also receiving a chemotherapy. You doctor certainly would have been required to get your approval for any chemotherapy.
