Welcome!! Very few LLMD's take insurance, as they are usually denied payment by them, and it makes it easier to track which doctors are prescribing high dose abx, which many LLMD's have been harassed and a few of our precious LLMD's have even lost their license to practice simply because they insist on using evidence based medicine that says we need that!! Crazy stuff! You can still ask around, as there are a few LLMD's that will work with you so that you can turn in the paperwork to your insurance for reimbursement.
For information on finding a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor(LLMD) in your area, please email our long time member, Dan's Mother at:email@example.com

You can also go to The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link:www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277&Itemid=74
You will want to find an ILADS (International Lyme And Associated Diseases Society) doctor. The ILADS site is another great place to read to get you started on your Lyme journey. www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/treatment_guidelines_clearing_ilads.html
You can also start a new thread with the title something like: "Looking for LLMD in the Killingworth, CT area" , although you will need to enable your email option in your profile so that others can email you with suggestions. For liability issues, and to protect our docs, we don't allow contact info to be shared here on the forum.
You can also send me an email, as I have the name of a LLMD not far from you. I don't know if he takes insurance or not though.
Please do read through our "New to Lyme? Start here!" thread if you haven't already, as there is a lot of important information, helpful links, symptom lists (Lyme rarely travels alone), and even a list of questions to ask your doctor!
