hiya, A bit nervous. Took my lab orders to labcorp today and they made me sign something saying that if my insurance (BCBS of NC) doesn't pay, they'll charge my credit card $5800. Then Labcorp didn't have the right chemicals to add to a few of the tests. (Technician said the tests were so unusual.)
She's ordered: (those in green, I don't know what they are???)
Bartonella Quintana/ PCR
Bartonella Quintana/ AB
Bartonella Miroti DNA
Ehrlichia AB Anaplasam
Heavy Metals (urine)
Parvovirus b19 Ab
Is this overkill? Don't get me wrong .. I'm ecstatic to finally have a doc that is testing me for perhaps the bazillion RIGHT things, but I'm concerned my insurance won't cover it all. What's been your experience with BCBSNC?
(Add to this the Igenex basic Lyme panel, $260 out of pocket test. But Labcorp will not do this draw for me.)
ETA: I have to go to a different Labcorp lab Tues morning ... an office that has the right chemicals.)
Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
