I have UHC and they didn't have any problems covering any of the blood test ordered except the CD57 which they wouldn't cover calling it experimental. I haven't done IV only oral meds, so I can't comment on that. I have a $4000 deductible so it's all out of pocket anyway, but if it's experimental it doesn't go towards your deductible. I did have a pos WB thru LabCorp, so I don't know if that would make a difference with what they would cover.
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day 5 months
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol
