I found IVIG Heaven...


Recommended Posts

I can't remember exact dose but us was Dr k"s, I think

it is posted on his website.

 

Brand was Gamunex

 

 

 

:wacko:

 

I wanted to let everyone know that I found an amazing company that did my son's second IVIG. They are called Coram Healthcare.

 

They have 75 locations across the US. They are infusion centers.

 

Here is the link:

phone number: 800-423-1411

 

Just to give you an idea on cost: When I went to Denver to the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders to get my son's first IVIG, it was $42,000 on paper (what they billed Blue Shield of Calif.) I had a $3,600 deductible which was already met so they paid $31,000 of that submitted bill and the doctor took that as payment in full.

 

Now, for my son's second IVIG (he is 130 pounds, 12 years old). The cost was $8,000 at Coram. I was fortuante to have a pediatrician that understands PANDAS (his son has it) and was willing to write up the orders and referred me to Coram Infusion services. My ped. used Dr. Kovacevic's protocol.

 

 

I can't believe it was 80% less! Just wanted to share this with all of you... This could mean the difference between someone getting IVIG or not getting it, in this economy especially...

 

I hope this helps these poor suffering kids and families...

 

Wonderful!!

 

Now the qestions...

 

What dosage 2 gr per? What is the type of IVIG? Name?/

 

Thanks

Melanie
