I had some blood work done at LabCorp, my insurance is thru United Health Care,  one of the tests was my CD57 (which came back low at 34)  the first CD57 that I had done they wouldn't pay for claiming it was experimental (I asked on the forum here and a number of you had yours paid for no problem).  Well they have requested clinical notes, progress notes, and lab results from that visit.  I called my doctor when I got the bill from LabCorp and also asked UHC why it was being held up.  The doctor never sent the info requested, so I called again and they said they need it in writing from UHC, so I called UHC and told them to re-request it.  I was at the doctors office with my husband so I asked in person if they had sent the requested info, they checked the chart and said they never received the request!  So while I was there I called UHC and asked for the fax number and watched while they faxed the stuff to UHC.  My question is how long do they have to screw around with all this before it goes on my record that I didn't pay my bill?  I know they probably have something in their system that flags anything to do with Lyme, but all this is going to be out of pocket anyway because we have a $4,000 deductible.   I'm tired of jumping thru hoops, I think maybe this is to scare the doctors that order any test having to do with Lyme.  Very subtle, but effective nonetheless.  KO
