    The information provide was good but one topic not address was for those FH patient unable to take statins due to severe intolerance to statin medication. I happen to be one of those patients. Fortunately for me my insurance company provided coverage for PSCK9 medication and the pharm company provides a copay card. My concern now is what happens when I go on Medicare. It is my understanding that it is not an approved drug and not covered by any of the drug plans – where do I go and what do I do? Another arena that needs to be addressed moving forward.
