Advice for financing visits to Mayo Clinic in Rochester
My husband has been dealing with an illness for a little over two years now with no diagnosis. His primary care is gathering a team of doctors to come up with our next steps. He has had countless blood tests and scans but still no solid answer as to what is causing him to be so sick. His doctor mentioned that the Mayo Clinic could possibly be our next step if their team cannot come up with any answers. We live in Georgia and are in our late 20s. My husband has not been working so we are a one income household. We are worried about what to do if we do indeed have to visit the Mayo Clinic. Do we pay for costly flights and hotels back and forth? Do we get my husband temporary housing (like Airbnb) if he is being seen in Rochester? We have also considered moving to Minnesota because we do not know how long it will take to get a diagnosis or how long the treatment may be once we get said diagnosis.
Any ideas on how we should go about this would be helpful! We are trying to plan ahead but are stuck on ideas about how to afford this. Thanks in advance to advice, ideas, or input you may have!
