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...


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.

My Lyme dx:11/05. My Mom's Lyme dx:5/16. ISO ASAP-Lyme Literate Dr & Neurologist-Prefer IL, IN, KY, MO, OH, TN. Can travel farther. Finances limited. Prefer Drs take Medicare or Payments. Need great list to find best fit. Tyvm.

I don't know of LLMDs who take Medicare or offer payment plans. You would have to call their offices to find out.

I only know of one LL Neurologist and he is in CT. Does not take insurance and only treats neurological problems resulting from Lyme, not Lyme itself.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:

Maybe they can help.

Some more resources for you (including Support Groups info):

Here is a link found on Lymenet for "Financial Help and Other Information":;f=3;t=023463;p=0

The Lyme Disease United Coalition has good information for financial resources on their website:

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%.
