I talked to Mayo's billing department and, largely due to my awesome negotiation skills, I was able to talk them down from a $5,000 deposit to a $3,000 deposit, refundable within 30 days. Since HealthPartners doesn't cover out of network providers at all, Mayo needs a guarantee. I reasoned with them that since the exam is only going to cost $650 tops, $5,000 seemed a little excessive. They grudgingly agreed. Perhaps they're worried that I'm going to start trashing the place and therefore need a deposit against me throwing a TV through a window.

But we agreed on 3k, which felt like a small victory.

But they confirmed my appointment on Monday with Dr. Hunter, so there is movement there.

Regardless, the financial stuff is my next hurdle.

G's folks are willing to cover the deposit - just let them know. I'll get on arranging contributions from friends and family to cover the actual cost, so no worries.

Count me in on all fundraising schemes - we gotta talk tomorrow before I leave town though.
