Where to have my Bone Marrow Transplant - RDP

Decision Point Associated with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). Posted on September 8, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

After having my first cancer treatment (surgery and HD Chemotherapy) at Scripps Green hospital in San Diego, I was very comfortable with my healthcare team there. My insurance changed and, although the BMT would be covered, it would only be covered at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) or City of Hope in Los Angeles. Rather than fight the insurance company to stay with Scripps, I decided to save my energy for fighting my cancer. I chose to have the BMT at UCSD and it turned out to be a very good decision. The new team was highly competent and I have been receiving great care there.
