Hi everyone,
 
My Dr wants me to get a SPECT scan but my insurance company says its not covered.  Has anyone had to pay out of pocket for their SPECT scan, and if so, how much was it.  Thanks!

Hi Chris; My spect at EHC was $2500. Why not just call the hospital and ask them??  I am sure the price differs in many areas.  D

Thanks Dowa...I will try that tomorrow. Now I'm depressed because I googled some results that indicated the scan was between $1000 to $1500.

Hi Chris: What I was told after paying for it, is almost anyone with Lyme or any biotoxin illness (like mold) will show abnormalities in the spect scan. All they told me was to detox and it should improve with time. What is the reason for the scan? Knowing what I know now, I would not pay the money for something to show what I already know. D
