Go outside the country. Germany or Israel is close to 100k, and India is 40 000$, even Russia is 40 000$. Healthcare prices in the US are just insane. I'm starting to save money for India, but it will be several years before I can get them, and I hope that I'm not worse by then .shucks wrote:So I got my final no from bcbssc on dr Burt's trial. I have pulled out all of the stops on the appeals, and now I only have the option of appealing to the state insurance board, who can order them to pay since it is a state health plan. Just thought you Guys thinking of hsct in the Burt trial should know that bcbs has paid in certain states, but has a blanket rule of first refusal, since it is considered "not accepted medical practice". They even sent me a letter saying that an independent medical review found it to be overly dangerous and not FDA approved for good reason. It is pretty disheartening news, but i don't want to go out of the country. Any idea on where to come up with 150k?
