@mpflood7, I'm so glad that @bernese53 asked for further clarification. You may also be interested in the information provided in this discussion:

You ask very prudent questions about ongoing care and cost. I highly recommend that you call Mayo Clinic appointments with these questions. They will work with you to understand the full extent of costs, insurance and inpatient vs out patients services. http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63

Mayo also has a cost estimator, but I think you may not yet have enough information about your diagnosis and treatment plan for it to be useful. Here is the link if you'd like to check it out. https://costestimator.mayoclinic.org/

Thanks. That reminds me – do they send you an appointment and testing itinerary before you go to Mayo? Do they base it on your medical records (and amend as they find more while you are a patient)? I'm going to look at the sites now – especially the inpatient vs. outpatient.

Colleen – I'm stunned. I used the Cost Estimator – for an Office Visit for a New Patient (CPT: 99204). It says that my health insurance only covers $12 of $462, leaving me with $450. My Explanation of Benefits states that at most, for a Specialist appointment, I just pay $60 (which I was expecting). That is how it works currently with my Specialists in Florida, and how I was told it would work in MN.

If you know, please tell me I am wrong – as this would possibly prevent me from going to Mayo Clinic at all. I have Blue Card PPO (which I am told is accepted at Mayo Clinic, Rochester – even though it is not accepted at Mayo Clinic Florida where I live). Please, again, let me know. Thanks.
