I just wanted to share some great news I just received. Maybe, just maybe, the tides are starting to change. lol My coverage for IV Rocephin and nursing have been extended for an additional two months for a total of 90 days. My fantastic llmd originally wrote a script for 90 days to begin with but warned me that Empire BC/BS in NY never covers more than 28 days. I was told the same exact thing by the nursing care company and even the case manager at BC/BS told me she's never had a case where medical review approved more than 28 days.
I realize that antibiotics are not the "be-all end-all" and do not work for many but this is a huge step for me since I've been so sick for so many years and only recently received a diagnosis.
Hopefully, this is a small sign that Lyme Disease is finally being taken more seriously by the insurance companies.
