    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I'm searching for answers about coverage and cash price. Responders here have said cash would be between 17K and 50K (!) but I'm curious if anyone has actually paid cash themselves and were given some type of 'discount off of sticker price.' Also, although insurance is supposed to cover it, I'm curious if anyone has had luck getting their plan to cover it. From what I've seen, there are only 2 tiny plans in MI and MN that will cover it, and then under very, very limited circumstances. Curious if anyone has had success with the BCBS, Aetnas or Uniteds of the world.
