Re: Cost for IgeneX testing?
Hi Jackie. Unfortunately, most Lyme doctors and Lyme labs do not take insurance becasue they often do not get reimbursed. People usually pay up front and if they have insurance then submit the bills for what the company will reimburse.
There are many different tests. At the minimum, I would suggest getting the Western Blot done for Lyme and the co-infection tests for both types of Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Babesiosis, and Bartonella. You can call IgeneX to find out the cost. I believe they will send the kit to you but you need to have the blood drawn through a doctor's office.
Your infection is still relatively early. Please do whatever it takes to get the treatment you need. Doing so may prevent long-term complications. Good luck.
