I need a LLMD in Vermont who is an MD AND who accepts NYS Worker's Comp insurance. I have neurological Lyme and the case has already been established. I was seeing Dr. C for treatment, but when the carrier found out she was a naturopath, the court said NYS Worker's Comp would not pay for her to treat me. I live near Springfield, VT. I haven't been able to work since 2012, and without treatment, my symptoms are getting bad again. I hope you can help me.
Thank you.

I don't know of any LLMDs in VT or any who take insurance.

PM set with some names in NH, but you will have to call to ask about insurance.

Most LLMDs do not accept insurance due to the politics surrounding this horrible disease. Read poster TF's explanation, "Why Lyme Doctors Don't Take Insurance":

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=025539;p=0

When calling for an appointment, ask if they have any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in to sooner by doing this.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/VermontLyme/info

Maybe they can help. They would know better about VT.

Some more resources (including Support Groups info):

Btw - please break up your posts into 2-3 sentence paragraphs, as there are people on Lymenet who cannot read large blocks of text due to neurological problems from Lyme.

To do this. click the pencil/paper icon, make your changes, then click "Edit Post". Thanks.
