Kymriah and Yescarta Policies Updated

Harvard Pilgrim covers the medications Kymriah and Yescarta with prior authorization for members of our commercial and StrideSM (HMO) Medicare Advantage plans.

Effective immediately, we have updated the policies to indicate that Kymriah and Yescarta are not covered for members previously treated with any CAR-T Therapy.
