I believe if you do a search, there are several posts by Martha's Vineyard discussing the costs.

You really need to call them because they told Marie and me completely different prices. They do NOT take insurance.  D

The first person I spoke to at Envita quoted me approximately $18,000. The second person quoted $2,500-$3,800 per week. If money was not an issue, I'd be on the next plane to AZ. lol They don't accept insurance, as most llmd's don't, but I was told depending on coverage some costs are usually covered. I'm assuming expenses like having the port inserted, certain meds, etc. would be covered the same way it is when someone is being treated by a llmd in private practice.

I went back in Oct of 08. I did not pay for my treatment. And the treatment has not remained the same.
Plus everyone has different co -infections and not one thing works for all.
But I think that it is ab out 3,500 a week now.
but that is a ball park.
When I went I told them that I only had lyme.
But later they found bart too.
So.....
Again.....I was out of my mind when I got there.
I saw others with lyme who were so much better off than me, and even able to work and drive. I could not do much at all.
Some people seem to be under the impression that I am rich. Let me just tell you that I lost my job 5 years ago...my homes and my kids and my mind.
And when I got out of Envita I cannot tell you how much stuff I had to deal with. Coming out of a coma...my phone was off and had been off for two years....
My yard men had not been paid in over a year...my plates on my car were over two years expired...
And my mortages was was behind.
I did not have any support from parents or family while getting my treatment. My kids were very effected and one dropped out of school.
My dog toto died in dec. who also sufferd from lyme..so boo hoo....it has not been easy for me either.
And moreover I could not lean on three of my best friends because two of them had brain cancer and died during my treatment and my best friend in the whole world who died last may...well he was worse of that me and I was giving him money so he could get teh med.s he needed of his pain...
So....I am no victum I am a surviver....lol...or so my therapist tells me....:>)

The port was covered and the oral abx were covered.
And they have reff. of people who can help you work with your insurance.
And I am not going to go into that on the internet.

I think it goes without spelling it out too much that one is not going to get so much over the phone..
Not when there is a witch hunt by the insurance companies to stop any and all Dr.s treating anyone beyond two weeks of abx. And according to the New England Journal of Medicine...none of you are sick at all.
And there is no such thing as cronic lyme.
So ....lol...can you tell that I have PMS now...lol
Don't get me started on all of these idiots..
I can only hope that they all get lyme this summer...

Oh please give them Lyme, give them pain in their neck and shoulders, give them swollen painfull knees, give them confusion such that they cannot remember family members names, tell them nothing is wrong with them, tell them NOTHING is wrong.
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.

It cost 3800.00 a week,port should be covered by insurance,if you call the patient rep at Envita they are very nice to answer questions! I was told 4-6 weeks at 3800.00 a week for everything,you have to find your own hotel and rent a car! Good luck at finding anyone that has been there besides Marie! I have asked every lyme forum and even asked Envita theselves and they could not give me one person I could call that has had a success story to share! Thats not to say there are none ,just noone wants to share I guess! Marie was very nice to answer my questions and share her experience I wish others would step forward! It is a HUGE decision seeing how it cost so much money,and the stay is long ,and its a lot of treatment! I have got three messages that Envita did not help them at all! So yeah thats scary! BUt remember everyone is different and react differently! But the patient rep said if I stayed 6 weeks it shouldnt go over 22000.00! Hope this helps some!!

The price they gave me was more than double what they told Sick of Lyme, so I would be very careful... They also told me there was no cure, only helped with Lyme symptoms.  D

Is it really true then that there has only been one person we know of that
has gone there with a good story..

How many people do you think have gone there that have Lyme?

I wonder? I think I will give them a call..

MY problem with them is that everytime someone calls them, they are given a different price. I was told anywhere from $40-60,000. Who in the world has that much money to spend. Maries ex- husband is wealthy (her words) so he could afford it.  But still, they are saying it is NOT a cure, is only helps with symptoms.   D

Keep hope. Look at my previous post on this post for the info I got! You can e-mail me if you like! And
Dowa, There is no cure for Lyme from any source but if you can get your immune system to take over it may be worth it for some!
