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.
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?
