Nov 18, 2018 · Insurance claim denied, consultation in 5 days in Visiting Mayo Clinic

Thank you @ldestella I appreciate the support. My husband was coughing up pools of blood and fighting for his life with a case of pneumonia before anyone thought to test his antibodies…. 8 years of this, 8 years and it took watching a 30 year old man dying on a hospital bed before anything helpful was done. This small ignorant town will be the death of him… so the appointment to Mayo Clinic was like a god send, but insurance declined it. After everything, they would rather pay for useless test after test than allow him to be seen by pioneers of medicine? I don’t know how to pay for his treatment or appeal to insurance but he needs to go to Mayo…

Thank you @kanaazpereira I will read through those suggested links today – need all the information we can get since we aren’t able to call anyone and address this any earlier than Monday. By then we’ll only have 2 days to try to resolve this, and I desperately don’t want to cancel this appointment….

Thank you @johnbishop , I was reading through that information last night and plan to call the MN branch billing department to see about filing for financial assistance before the appointment

Is there a Patient Advicate from Mayo Clinic that could help in this case. My husband has CVID with unknown bowel and allergy problems that neither his GI doctor not his Immunologist have been able to diagnose and treat. Our GP submitttd the case and referal for his consultation at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and an appointment has been set for November 21st, but insurance declined it. The funny thing about Rapid City SD is that the specialists are too arrogant to admit they don’t understand what’s causing his symptoms and have outright refused to send in a referal for him. His immunologist went as far as to say we should wait a year and then he’ll consider it. This was two weeks before being notified that he sold his practice and is moving out of state.

Please. Is there anyone at Mayo who could help us?
