changing nero after 8 years

I have been going to the same nero for 8 years now it is time to move on. I am on medicare and in December an ins agent came to my house because the company I had dumped me. I have no Idea why I guess I am too expensive. Any way the agent signs me up with another company turns out it is a HMO after I asked not to be on a HMO. The nero I was seeing is part of the plan but there was a typo on the ins card it said I had medicaid which caused a problem the nero does not take medicaid. I told the lady that handles appointments and ins I do not have medicaid she wanted to argue with me about it. I told her go call medicaid and see. It is a typo. Medicaid told her I do not qualify I make too much. Still she did not give me an appointment she had to talk to her rep from the company but I could call the company and they could call her back so I did and they called her while I was on the phone with them still no app. I called her and again and blah-blah-blah. So I found a nero that is taking new patients and had my records sent to him that was yesterday. Now I am waiting for an appointment with him. I am looking forward to seeing the new nero because my wife seen him a while back and I talked to him a little then he seemed to take a different approach to controlling symptoms. It will be interesting to hear what he has to say.At the same time there is always doubt when going to a new nero. I hope he works out if not I will keep looking.

Re: changing nero after 8 years

If you have Medicare, you will have been issued a Medicare card and number. Show this to the staff. If you must change neurologists, your local MS Association or Society can assist you.

Re: changing nero after 8 years

That was my medicare ins not really sure how all that works but they already have a copy of the red white and blue card. as far as a nero goes I found 1 that I hope turns out to be all I have herd him to be. I just have doubts any time I hear of things that seem too good to be true. I have spoken to him before and he talked like he is too good to be true maybe not. The nurce from the other nero said he is a good Dr. I guess I'll see when I see him.
