I am naturally curious but his is very stressful given not only my health but my financial situation, being on my own and coming from a long distance. I wish I could know if there were any way to be hospitalized at Mayo Clinic. Given the tests and number of specialists, it seems it would make more sense in terms of quality collaborative care and even financially. For example, from a care standpoint, my understanding is that in a hospital, the doctors can know sooner how well a new medication will work. (I also want the Mayo doctors to care for me throughout rather than the doctors where I am in south Florida.) From a financial perspective, my insurance caps the cost if in a hospital (better for me, since I'll know the max), but with outpatient visits and tests, it seems the cost could sky-rocket. Might you have any further insight? Thank you again for your info and for your empathy. Very kind of you.
