Both myself and my mother reside in S.W. Kentucky. We both need a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor. I especially need a Lyme Literate Neurologist as well. Both ASAP!!!
Our Preferred States (in no particular order) are listed below. We can travel farther though, to other states, with the help of Angel Flight Ministries, if needed...
Illinois Indiana Kentucky Missouri Ohio Tennessee
Unfortunately, myself and my mother are both low income. Myself, more so than my mother, but my mother can help me out some.
So, we would prefer that the doctors take Medicare or perhaps have a payment plan. It's not necessarily a requirement though. Just a preference, as far as being our best option, considering our poor financial situations.
If we can possibly find some doctors that do one or both, in any of the states listed above, that would be great. If not, then we're willing to consider what our other options are.
We just need a really great list, in order to get a really firm idea, of what all of our available options truly are, so we can make a solid decision.
Thank you very much. We really appreciate your help.

Scroll down for financial help, etc., available from several sources.
The Lyme Test Access Program (Lyme-TAP) is a nationwide patient assistance program to provide assistance for initial Lyme-related lab tests to patients who demonstrate true financial need. I think coverage is up to 75%. View on www.lymetap.com
