    Expenses???

    Hi,
    My name Is Lloyd and I'm 20yrs post injury (car accident)
    As fasinating as these forums are,I haven't seen anything about cost or how these people can afford these procedures.
    Is there funding out there I don't know about.Or is it privately funded

    Pickled:

    Most have come up with their own money or have received help from community fund raisers, yard sales, etc. Insurance will not pay for overseas experimental treatments.

    Good luck:

    Hi Pickled, welcome.

    Along with what Dr. J said, some people have also used money from settlements.

    Just do keep in mind that these costs are for experimental treatments...in the event that something makes it all the way through the process here in the US and becomes FDA approved, it will probably be covered by insurance.
