I did have a plan that covered 80% to see any doctor outside of plan in 1998. PPO plans might help a little. Last May, I paid for all costs. Money was a huge issue for me, but I am okay with this hole in my shoe and my Politically Incorrect Car. :-) It is a very difficult choice.
I blame the insurance companies. ***Everyone should have access to the same expert care***! To think that these few and brilliant surgeons would be paid by insurance companies the same as a doc who doesn't have much knowledge on endo and complications is wrong. HMO plans saying that all endo patients can get the same care with ob/gyn's on their list are full of it. I think there needs to be a new classification of Endo Specialists (hear it's in the works).
Okay...of my bandwagon. Thanks for bringing the issue up.

I saw Dr. David Redwine on the West coast. Dr. Albee is in Atlanta, Dr. Reich in PA, NY...Let me know if you would like websites. It's been 2 yrs. The lining grew back and is now normal tissue. But, I still have adhesions and they do cause pain.
