downunda and CrohnieToo, thanks very much for the info!
I think my crappy insurer will use the "we don't cover it cause the FDA hasn't approved it" excuse. that's how they got out of the capsule endoscopy. darn *e***!
anyway, I do have Medicare, at least they take it out of my check, but I have to register it or something. I was considering keeping that $100 or so a month to reduce financial stress, but if they cover more tests than insurer, might be worth it. my experience with elderly parent is even if they do cover something it' s never 100%, more like 15%, and I'm stuck with the rest, unless the physician accepts assignment, which very few of the top-end physicians seem to do, at least, in my area. the ones that accept it usually have very little time to spend with patients, also. think I'll start another thread about this...
