    Since FDA approval, insurance carriers have started approving coverage. It will take time to get to a point where reimbursement level gets to be more uniform and where majority of carriers will agree to reimburse. The latest estimates that I have seen have ~133million lives covered in total, it's a good start and we will hopefully get to the point where all patients will have coverage (fingers crossed). I have 3 info graphics to show the latest updates on insurance carriers and I will try to see if I can add to this post. Otherwise, I will ask Dr. Farkas to upload the images for me.

    Thanks for your excellent comments & questions, everyone!
