National Migraine & Headache Awareness Month (MHAM) this June is rapidly approaching! U.S. Pain is offering three fun, easy ways to get involved and help create awareness:

  1. Requesting a proclamation from your town or state
  2. Requesting a landmark or building in your town or state be lit up in purple
  3. Host a screening of “Out of My Head,” a documentary about headache and migraine disease.

To learn more about all three of these opportunities, check out last month’s news article. Keep in mind that the time to take action is now, as most of these activities require some advance planning.

In addition to the above, Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER), an independent research organization that evaluates the clinical and economic value of treatments and tests, is assessing the new class of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) inhibitor medicines for migraines. Insurance companies will use ICER’s final report to determine if they will cover these medicines, how much the coinsurance will be, and what types of prior authorization or step therapy will be required.
