My first LLDr. visits ranged from about
$75.00 up to over $500.00.... but, my current LLDr. is the best in FL. I think I pay from $50 to $150 a visit. My insurance has always covered my visits. Now I have Medicare primary and then Cigna. My latest round of IV abxs cost:
New Patient: $106.47 (only paid this once)
IV Rocephin: $192.00 (per day, 4x per week)
Office service: $213.42 (per day, 4x per week)
So after my "new patient" visit, my IV abx cost $405.42 a day x 4 days = $1,622.00 each week x 10 weeks = 16,220.00.
This was the 3rd time in 8+ years that I have had IV abxs. The rest of the time I have been on oral abxs.
