Reply To: CIDP diagnosis, Medicare

A friend has United Healthcare Medicare Advantage as a retiree from the State of Georgia. He gets home infusion through Part D, but I think there is a copay. I think the hospital or infusion center is a better option so that Part B and the supplement will take care of the cost. The test you’re referring to, I believe, is called an EMG. That was the first test I had, plus a lot of blood work and then a lumbar puncture to diagnose the CIPD. I’m scheduled to have my first infusion next Monday at the hospital as an outpatient. It’s good to know that your treatment is working.
