Gracie: Igenex does not take insurance, so if you had your primary doc run it, you would still have to pay up front. (I did) I am told they only take medicare. Hope that changes some day and they honor our insurance. Maybe see if your primary could order the CD57 or something that might help you make a diagnosis. Something your insurance would pay for. I hear you ...I have spent all of my savings and I am still looking for answers. Its very frustrating and draining. Take care...D
I personally don't believe the CD57 is a good measure for lyme. Mine is high and I am pretty ill. I know others who have low CD57's and show few or no symptoms. That is just my opinion and I would not use it as a replacement for Igenex or Clongen labs to diagnose lyme.
