Hi @judyn, I can imagine how concerned you are for your son's health and the complications with work absences and the threat of losing insurance. Has your son called Mayo Clinic to let them know about the terms of his insurance and the need to get an appointment sooner? Is he able to get a leave of absence from his work without losing his insurance until his health improves?
