Why do insurance companies do this? It seems like any USA insurance company would have the right to refuse a treatment not even approved in the USA. So, basically refusing these patients increase their bottom line. I know insurance companies have no soul, so why would they pay for this? Any insights?

CLINUVEL PHARMACEUTICALS LTD is a global biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and delivering treatments for patients with a range of severe genetic and skin disorders. As pioneers in photomedicine and understanding the interaction of light and human biology, CLINUVEL’s research and development has led to innovative treatments for patient populations with a clinical need for photoprotection and regimentation. These patient groups range in size from 5,000 to 45 million worldwide.

CLINUVEL’s lead compound, SCENESSE® (afamelanotide 16mg), was approved by the European Commission in 2014 for the prevention of phototoxicity (anaphylactoid reactions and burns) in adult patients with the rare genetic disorder erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP).

As the first ever photoprotective drug, SCENESSE® activates eumelanin, the dark pigment in skin. Eumelanin is capable of selective light absorption, including at the wavelengths of light which excite protoporphyrin IX, the compound which causes phototoxic reactions in patients diagnosed with EPP, a disorder which causes absolute intolerance to light (blue and green spectrum).
Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, CLINUVEL has operations in Europe, Switzerland, the US and Singapore.

Love to see that in email or letter, go public! FDA promotes a drug for US citizens, shouldn't it be FLASH tracked? Like instant approval!

From Ms. Beck's page:

"Dr. Marcus of the FDA knows American citizens are going to Zurich. Her office recommended it as the best course of treatment to live with EPP."

"In today’s world some shareholders enjoy complaining to Board and management but then they do not sell their stock, they hold on and sometimes buy even more."

A rose by any other name. Whether it's an RTF or not, the FDA wants more info. We know what it is they're after, and it's not a big deal, so whatever you want to call it doesn't matter.

Still puzzling how this happened given the context of their submission process, but whatever. Just get the extra docs turned in and keep the wagons rolling.
