I visit my lyme doc every month at a $160 a pop, not covered by insurance. Is this typical?
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild")  UC.Just found out 4 years into it I might have Lyme's Disease, going to a LLMD in December. Confirmed Lymes on 12/8/09 before my new antibiotic protocal from my LLMD, I  Started and stopped LDN ON 1/25/09 to mid May no improvements. Tried Asacol, Pentesa, Colozol, Sulfasulsadine and Lialda, they made me worse. A range of antibiotics (for 10 days here and there), not much better. Supplements: No UC meds at this time. Started Doxy and Cedfinir too rough on stomach, stopped those.Started Bicillin injection 1/12/10, once a week of injections.On Zithromax and Flagyl as well, about 2 year protocol to rid myself of bacteria Babesia, Chylmadia Phenomia and Borresliosis. Taking Oxy Aloe Flush and liquid vitamins, curcumin and CO Q10

I just paid $540 to see my new LLMD. He does take some insurance, but doesn't take my Anthem Blue Cross. I will submit the bill to ABC and hope to get reimbursed for the entire amount. The $160 seems to be a reasonable amount.

I pay $90 for a regular visit and $125 if blood is drawn. The insurance reimburses about $26.

I paid $500 (no insurance coverage) to see a local LLMD who was basically unhelpful...my much more helpful LL Naturopath charges a lot less and is covered on my insurance with a $15 copay plus the 20% coinsurance...I think he charges about $150 per visit, depending on how much time is spent with me (his visits are usually a lot longer than regular MD's I've seen), but insurance pays most of it.

If your doc is helping, I'd say it's worth it. If money is a problem see if you could cut your visits to every 6 weeks or once every other month.

I pay $450 for an office visit and I think $325 for an appointment via phone. I schedule appointments every 8 weeks or so and usually only go into the office every other visit. He does not accept insurance but my out-of-network coverage has been reimbursing me 80%.
