Why Is Nasonex Not Covered By Insurance?

Most pharmacies provide both generic and brand-name versions of these nasal sprays. Prescription medication insurance programs typically cover generic prescription drugs like mometasone furoate without prior permission. When your insurance company needs additional steps before paying for your medicine, this is known as prior authorisation. For example, they may require you to try the generic version first before paying for the brand-name medication. However, brand-name Nasonex may necessitate prior approval.
