    Check with @Dirty Don. He sees someone at Mayo.

    I called Mayo in Phoenix and they don't work well with Medicare, told me there would be higher co-pays. I had checked in with one of the satellite clinics last visit and they didn't take it at all. Thanks though.

    Mayo in general does charge a higher rate, about 15% over the Medicare pay back rate if one demands math. It's not a co-pay, just added to bill. If one has secondary insurance, it usually picks up most of that excess. Mayo docs have the option of taking Medicare IF they want...it's their choice, your good luck. For example, I go to the Shea clinic for most of my appts. and never a problem with Medicare. It's approximately a $1000 bill w/ bloods, etc. I pay about $100 of that. So, yes, they do charge above a 'going rate', then again, weigh the services one gets for it. I'd call the dept. you want instead of a clinic...Mayo clinics are designed to service those who don't need the docs right away...they need a referral from a Mayo doc to keep insurance active there. My rheumy is Dr.Lester Mertz, head of rheumatology for PHX Mayo, dept. ph.# 480-301-4342. And, one other bitty piece of advice, sometimes one has to keep calling Mayo to get in. They are usually full outside of emergencies...but once in, you have full access to them all of the time. Best of luck to you...
