4 days ago · Changing Mayo Hospitals from Minneapolis to Phoenix? in Visiting Mayo Clinic

@laylabug I find it very weird that Rochester accepts Medicare but AZ doesn't. Guess I'll have to continue to fly to Rochester vs a 4 hr drive to AZ from our kids house in So Cal when we are visiting them.

@hopeful33250 Thanks Teresa; not a resident of AZ, but live on the Calif/OR border and visit So Cal 3-4 times a year.

5 days ago · Changing Mayo Hospitals from Minneapolis to Phoenix? in Visiting Mayo Clinic

Currently I am a very happy patient @ the Rochester campus's Gastroenterology Department. Due to a recent move switching to the much closer Phoenix campus would save me a lot of money and since we are on a fixed income (Retired) saving money is important to us.

My questions are as follows:
1) Do Campus's make these type referrals?
2) In Rochester, my Medicare and BCBS covers 99% of all the bills. Since starting with Mayo in 2015, my out of pocket hospital bills that I was libel for was $8.00. I have been told that Phoenix doesn't accept Medicare patients, is this correct?
Thanks in advance,
Dave

@clutch My PCP made the call to Mayo for my case to get me the appointment at Mayo Rochester.

@clutch If you haven't had your DR. call with a referral , that might get you in faster; just a thought.

@afrochic 1st treatment for Barrett's was in 1/2015 in a local hospital where they did a Biopsy, and RFA without removing a node in my esophagus . when the biopsy can back the area around the node had hi-grade dysplasia. Was told I couldn't have treatment locally so I went to Mayo. Because of the RFA had to wait til 7/2015 to have the Mucosal resection and another RFA done along with another biopsy which again showed Hi-Grade Biopsy.So,for the next 2 years went to Mayo every 3 months for a scope and RFA. A year ago only a scope since no Barrett's was visible so went to wait for 6 Mo.. Last visit was in July and the scope was clear so next visit moved out to a year from then

@hazelnut it seems to me with all the differing opinions of your doctors, you would really benefit from visiting Mayo, where the MD's work together. Just a thought.
