Mark, thank you for responding to my post. Ironically, we “were” just with Kaiser (for a year), but then I decided I needed more options as far as going to where need be and not confined to Kaiser, so we changed to UnitedHealthcare. With that said, I have been working on trying to get authorization for my husband to be seen at UCLA; I have had a little feedback, the process is slow, but there has been “progress” toward that end. I have been told by contacts and this foundation here that is working with me regarding UCLA and Dr. Michael Graves, Perry Shieh, etc. So, its hurry up and wait. Hell, what’s the hurry, right? (as one of my husband’s doctors unconsciously questioned me!? Unbelievable)… but I continue to push. Thank you for your post and information. I hope you are in a much better place with your GBS – being as you’re on this ‘site’ I can assume you’re dealing with this. MY SYMPATHIES AND HEART GOES OUT TO YOU. I hope you get there, if not already! :o), Lisa.
