Also… I dont understand why s.s. deducts hundreds of dollars each month for Medicare, then my blood tests cost 5x more. Is this a Mayo norm?? I realize this is a billing topic…but I'm being screened for MGUS.

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.

I think you should go into an urgent care center. Have your pulse, heart rate, etc examined.
Didnt your coaches pick up on your condition…if you say out on the beach??

@godsgiver …yes, I remember your post about your situation, and I had responded. Hope your coping better. Different situation for me…I'm not a caregiver, nor is this person in need of one. This is a young, healthy person that surely can use counseling, but you cant help someone that doesn't want help. I walk on eggshells and carefully choose my words, as I never know what sets the trigger. I dont exactly dance to their tune either, but use my best wisdom, which I need help with. I choose to stay involved in their life, as I know they truly need my unconditional love. I believe in due time God will heal.

@parus …exactly. Thats why it might help if I seek counseling.

I wouldn't say I'm dealing with a mental disease (I want to clear that up)…this is a highly intelligent person with more of a personality disorder that chooses poor decisions that always reap bad consequences…hurtful to the entire family and takes no responsibility for their actions…I really dont want to label it, but I surely know what it is. I wouldn't say it's an addiction either…pure delusional thinking to benefit oneself. Seems I become the blame and target as well if I dare offer advice or guidance.
Wreaking havoc on their own life as well. I'm looking into the programs suggested here…appreciate so much!!
