About me: Hi, my name is Miriam. I have a rare disease named Kallmann Syndrome. I am on Louisiana Medicaid but it doesn’t pay for out of state specialists so I have to pay out of pocket. That’s where I need y’all help. As inflation rises, so does medical cost and transportation to get there. I could get a cheaper flight if I drive southeast out of New Orleans. Being 3 hours away, and the cost of gas, it comes out to the same price flying out of the town I live in. Below I have gone into detail about prices.
I will need to be in Boston from October 5th-11h. I have an appointment for my Kallmann’s specialist within that time frame, and the bill will be $1236. It may go up depending on if she needs more in-depth testing. While there, we are having a patient meeting that weekend. It is a chance to gather other Kallmann patients and allow us to talk with the experts.
I will also need flights and a hotel round trip from Lafayette, LA, to Boston-Logan Airport. The closer it is to the hospital, the better.
