I haven't. It gets good reviews on Trip Advisor. How expensive is it?
Even in Mexico - huge costs....too bad!Very, very expensive, if insurance doesn't reimburse it. Apparently some insurance plans will reimburse a significant component, after a third party adjusts the Mexico codes to U.S. codes (taking a percentage of any recovered reimbursements), but there's no advance guarantee of reimbursement possible. From what I understand, they do customize their programs, but the general two-week medical program is $14,900. That covers room, board, evaluation and treatments.
I have been to Sanoviv Institute for 4 weeks total. My Insurance covered the lab work and daily physician visits but not room and board. Since the time I went there my insurance will not cover any charges whatsoever as they have discovered it provides alternative care.
Yes, I have Federal Employee Blue Cross/Blue Shield through my husband's job. Also, they do modify your Nutrition plan as needed. For example, a couple of the patients had Crohn's Disease where raw food where a completely raw diet would have been a detriment.Thank you, Joyful1, for your generous reply! I'm glad to hear that it sounds like your experience was positive overall. It's helpful to understand their commitment to raw food; that's not a fit for me, so I'll know to make sure I communicate clearly about food if I pursue going there. Thanks for being forthright about the insurance changes. That is concerning. May I ask what insurance you have?
After they had paid I received a letter explaining because it was an "alternative Hospital" they would no longer cover care there. Sanoviv does have a representative that acts as a third party to ensure all the right "wording and coding" in the Bill is sent to the Insurance Co. (of course that third party receives a fee for their help).That's relieving to hear about their ability to make dietary modifications. Thank you. I have a BCBS plan too. It's not the federal plan, though; it's a state-based PPO. I don't know how thoroughly information flows through and amongst their various affiliates. Is your knowledge about your plan being unwilling to cover further costs at Sanoviv b/c you inquired directly or b/c someone you know was denied coverage? Also, did you submit directly or through a third party?
