Medicare and Mayo

In my experience some departments at Mayo will take Medicare patients and others do not. I have tried several times to get an appointment with a GI specialist who was recommended and have been denied an appointment. Also, I was unable to schedule an appointment with a Primary Care Physician. I was told they don’t take any more Medicare patients.

Thanks Peck1944. It seems that we seniors on Medicare are made to jump through more hoops to get the care we need. And yet Medicare wastes so much money because of the incompetence within the system. Doctors don’t want to contend with them because they do not pay the exorbitant fees they charge. And so we seniors are actually discriminated against.
