I've been getting blood tests through Mayo Clinic to monitor MGUS. I recently became covered by Medicare. My bill has jumped up to near $500 per blood test. I also have a secondary insurance to be submitted. This leaves me with close to $1,000 a year for bloodwork only!! I dont get it!!
I cant do this to be watched with no treatment. Yes, I have made several calls in about this matter…I'm not getting anywhere. I really think, since I cannot afford such payments, I will have drop out. Mayo has been my best care ever…but it doesn't make sense that my fees goes from $60 to $500 because I'm on on Medicare?? So sad…I'm on my own because I cant have mayo watch me.
