Update! Approved and Appt 7/7. What to expect now?

Posted by kaf80 @kaf80, May 18 11:42am

My dad was approved after his doctor sent a summary letter. We have an appt 7/7 with Dr. Scalini in Internal Med. How does it work now bringing in team? What should we expect?

And, his insurance (Medicare and AARP Supplement) say the visit is approved if medically necessary. Is there anything we need to do on our end to ensure that coverage?

Hello @kaf80

What good news. I'm so pleased that your dad was accepted for an appointment. Here is a link to information if you want to call Mayo about insurance questions, https://www.mayoclinic.org/patient-visitor-guide/billing-insurance/insurance.

If you would like to see what others have posted about their first visit to Mayo Clinic, here is a discussion that will be helpful, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/traveling-to-mayo-clinic/. Some of these comments will help you understand what could happen at the first appointment. Did you receive any information as to what to expect other than an appointment with the doctor?

As I recall your dad has Parkinson's as well as some digestive issues. Is that correct?


Yes, he has Parkinson’s and Ulcerative colitis as his two primary do. His appt is with internal med. I’m not sure if we should expect additional appointments at this visit?
