Here's what I posted on the open forum.
Since you didn’t give me a time line on when this mock hearing is scheduled for, I decided to start with the basics of defense on this matter.
Here is a link to the guidelines from W.H.O on prescribing medicines by a doc.
There is 8 steps and if she can answer, “yes” to all she should use these guides to justify her position on what is best for the patient as while as the most economical and convenient treatment plan.
Once she can present her treatment plans that follow these guidelines it puts the drug co. in a position of presenting their guidelines to explain why they want to do things that are not acceptable practice or conform to a standard specific guideline.
She needs to prepare herself with these guidelines so she can point out and question them as to why they are trying deviate from a standard practice.
I think you can see what I’m suggesting here is to switch positions from defendant to accuser which then puts the Ins. co on the defense and forces them to justify their position.
If this moves from these hearing phases and moves into civil court my suggestion at this point would be to hire a MD-JD (Doctor/Lawyer) to represent her in court.
Here’s the PDF on these guidelines!!http://www.aafp.org/afp/2007/0115/p231.pdf
I found the whole guidelines on line pdf 147 pages if she wants the whole story??http://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/1066
