I have HIP and my GI tried to order it but the Lab that "QUEENS LONG ISLAND MEDICAL GROUP" uses (Centralized Laboratory Services) doesn't even list it as a test.
My Dr said it is because it is really not mainstream yet.
Thanks, Bobby. They better get with the program because it saves them a lot of money. I haven't given up yet, but before I actually had the blood drawn I called my insurance to make sure they would cover it and the person said they didn't see any indication that it would NOT be covered, so I went with it with that information. I'm going to fight it because it's $350!!!
I wish I had health insurance... I went on Long Term Disability and several years later they sent me a letter stating that since I did not have social security disability they were going to cancel my insurance. I went to an attorney and was told there is nothing I could do. My husband an I are on the verge of losing everything because of my Hep C.
I am so sorry to hear that. We really need to do something in this country regarding health insurance for everyone.
Hang in there.
