ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    YES! :victory: :victory: Now I can send daughter without worrying about the cash flow problem I currently have since I'm still waiting for my insurance company to repay me for my appt in February.

    How great! I wonder if they cover for the extended appts that we usually need, or only as a 10 minute type appt like most docs have....

    Probably depends on your insurance company. I'm still waiting to find out how much of my February appt my insurance is going to cover.

    Yeah, I would think this depends upon insurance and the Dr/facility etc..

    My Dr does not pressure me to get out of the office, I can spend an hour with him, and it's not like he is trying to kick me out. Although this means he is always! running late! But it's good for the patient who has a million issues to go over/discuss, like CFS! I also used to see another Dr at a different facility, and he would be kicking me out after 1/2 hour, he was a further drive for me, and the Dr I now see was his former boss, i'm satisfied at this point.

    you can call 305-595-4300 to ask about medicare, sorry I do not know.

    The visit is coded as specialist extended Visit or something like that. You can call and give your insurance info and they tell you if covered.

    i just called and they do take medicare! Dr. Rey is seeing all of Dr. Klimas's patients now as Dr. Klimas is working on setting up a program to teach other docs about CFS (so great).

    I have BC/BS but not of Florida. I just called my insurance and they would cover it as in in-network visit - wow - amazing! (If you have BC/BS, please check in to your own situation, because I know they have a lot of different groups).
