Hey, CG, yes, I understand .... my WB had Lyme pos. bands but the overall test was deemed "negative".
I don't remember whether I had met my deductible or not. I haven't gotten a bill from the hospital for the picc placement, either, which was done on June 14. The infusion people said they could put in a picc line, without going to the hospital (which was an outpatient procedure), but my husband wanted me to do it at the hospital instead. The type I had put in, they said could last 6 months or longer.
One thing that we told the BC/BS people and the infusion people was that the diagnosis is "Borreliosis infection." I don't know whether that makes any difference, but my husband thought that it might, so that's the terminology we used. It's an accurate term, but not the most 'common' term.
You'll feel better once you talk to your insurer, I would suspect. I have kept a written log of who I talked to (the person's name) and when; and I keep a rather spotty journal of my symptoms, but just continued documentation that I still DO have symptoms, in case I need to present that to someone later on. Isn't it awful that you have to worry about not only getting well, but whether or not you're going to go broke getting there?
