Insurance only wants peer reviewed studies or papers unfortunately
So far only found three for very small pediatric Crohns studies and one on JSpA .
Which makes appealing it difficult

I suspect you have already discovered this study; since they're beginning it in January is it too late to try to get your son into this study? What does insurance want him to take instead?
