I'm desperately in search of a LLMD who will take Medicare Part B insurance. I'm a very difficult case and extremely ill, at the moment, so I've got to try to find one of the best of them.

Angel Flight Ministries is willing to fly me for free to where I need to go. They're a great non-profit organization, who has volunteers that help poor, medically needy people get the care they need, if they can't get it close to home, such as me.

I'd like as complete of an up-to-date list as I can get, so I can thoroughly investigate my options. If end up choosing a LLMD that is farther away than another, but better, I may need it and my investigational notes to state my case, so to say, to get them to take me there and back.

I was helping Michael (sorry, but I can't remember his username here), quite some time ago, maintain and compile a list of LLMDs, with specifics about them, such as whether or not they take insurance and if so, what kind, etc. That list would be outdated now, even if my computer's hard drive hadn't crashed and I lost it. If anyone can help me contact him, I'd certainly appreciate it.

I'm desperately looking for a complete, up-to-date list of all LLMDs, which I can contact and ask, at least, even plead my case, if I have to, about taking my insurance. I, for sure, don't have anything to lose by asking any or all of them. Maybe there's even a good one on the list close to me that will agree to treat me, according to what I can afford or set up some kind of payment plan with me? All I know is, right now, I'm so extremely sick now that if I don't find a LLMD and get some treatment soon, I'm putting my life at greater risk.

I'm not new here and can be trusted with whatever information I'm given. Unfortunately, I went through a lengthy divorce and moving around, which has left me financially ruined. That forced me to have to stop my treatments, which has been quite a few years now. I'm sicker now than ever and even though I'm under a lot of financial strain still, I realize I have to try my best to do something, rather than nothing, as I can barely get out of bed and rarely go anywhere now.

Please, please help me, if you can. Thank you very much.

Your mailbox is full - cannot send you important information.

I think Michael posted as "METALLICBLUE". He hasn't been around for a while - hope he's ok.

We have them listed state by state. Any preferences at all? My list is several years old, but willing to send you some names.

The most up-to-date info would be thru support groups:

Sorry about my mailbox. I deleted some messages. The bigger the LLMD list, the better. I have unlimited long distance calling, so I'll just go down the list and beg and plead. And do a lot of praying.

I don't really care so much about where the LLMD is located. First, is if they will take me? Second, is how good are they?

It's best to PM whomever you're asking. They may not see this.

There is a brand new Lyme practice in CT that is taking insurance. They are ILADS trained and they are good.

Jennie I'm sorry you are having such a hard time!

Michael is fine, he is on Facebook a lot and was on Lyme Friends a while back.
