I got a call today from Mayo financial depot, in response to a message I left them. The doc I saw there wants me to see two more docs: ENT & Neuro-psychologist. The problem is my insurance does not cover the psychologists at Mayo, only a few outside that area. If I see her it's going to be 100% out of my pocket. It's a 6 your testing exam, which is going to be very intense the last said, and very very expensive: $5700.00. Yep that's right!
Part of me wants to say, "no way, find a doc in my network!" The other part of me is saying, "people dont go to Mayo first. It's a last resort because every other doc has failed to find answers. A six hour exam is totally abnormal so this doc is going to be intensely thorough. Do I really want to take the chance at a mediocre exam after all the time and money it has taken to get this far?". Then I look at the amount and think, " where the heck will we get that kind of money?! " What's it really worth, the whole picture? My hubby doesn't know yet, and I feel like I'm up the creek without a paddle... What's your opinions??? 🙏🌼
