My insurance (UHC), is hassling me about my bloodwork I had done, which included my 2nd CD-57.  They are requesting the Progress notes, test results, and clinical records from my doctor.  The first time I had my CD-57 done they didn't pay for it, calling it experimental, now this.  I think they have an alarm that goes off whenever someone has a CD-57 done that says, hey someone else thinks they have "Chronic Lyme" time to hassle them.  Like we need any more headaches!  What a PIA!
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 stopped Zhang's after 6 months symptoms returned.  Started Buhner's protocol May 2009

I have UHC also and they wouldn't pay for my IgeneX testing so we ended up with a 900.00 bill they won't cover.
I even sent them specific copies of everything they did including diagnostic codes and they never responded to us. We sent the copies 3 times and still nothing.
They have been terrible during my entire treatment..

I had UHC briefly through my work, and they were terrible. I paid them $1000's in premiums, and they paid next to nothing of my medical bills...and then they went and messed up their customer service phone system and I could never get in touch with them to ask questions after that...good thing I had other much better insurance at the time...
