Hi I am a Canadian going down to the states for my first
appointment tomorrow with a well known LLMD Yay!!!!!!

My question is where to get my meds. Are they cheaper in the
States or should I bring them back to Canada?? I will have to pay
obviously none of this is paid for but has anyone from Canada gotten reimbursed for meds through insurance?

Also what about the weekly bloodwork, do I have to get a requisition from my family doctor or would an american requisition work here in Canada?

Last question, what about a picc line? If I got one is there somewhere right over the border (I live in Niagara) I could go to to get a pic line cared for every week? Any Canadians get a picc line through an American doctor?

Thank you so much, we are leaving in a couple hours and my mind is racing. Not sure they will be able to help me with these questions at my appointment.

You may want to change your topic to include something about Canadians so they will see this and open your thread.

Opinions, not medical advice!

The doc you are going to should be able to answer your questions.

If not, you could check with the Canadian group too.

For help paying for meds...
