Anyone have any luck appealing insurance force switch from remicade? If not, switch to inflectra or avsola? Any issues?

My son just received his first infusion of Avsola today. I'll let you know how it goes. Evidently all United Healthcare and Cigna patients had to switch as of July 1. He's in remission so hopefully it will stay that way.
