Good morning. My husband also gets IVIG for two days every three weeks for a different neurological condition. We normally have a nurse come to the house, although he has gotten it outpatient in the hospital before. Would a rehab facility allow her to be transported back to the hospital when she needs an infusion? Or, would they allow a nurse from her infusion company to come into the rehab facility? It doesn't make sense to me why they wouldn't, unless it's some type of a liability or insurance issue.

I believe it is an insurance issue with the rehab facilities, The way it has been explained to me is a rehab facility is a bundled service so all of your care costs comes out of the set payment, therefore IVIG is too expensive for the rehab to include in their cost of care, it would not be cost effective for them.
