I had a PICC line inserted almost three weeks ago and wanted to post the info here for anyone needing it in the future. Dr. Paul Cipriano of Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures put in the line. He is in San Jose - 408-918-0405. He works a lot with Dr. Harris, but I bet he would do it for anyone with an order. They just asked me to bring the order with me.
I called and had an appointment in 1 1/2 weeks. They got prior authorization from Anthem Blue Cross, much to my amazement. I didn't think they would pay for it. They are out of network. He did the procedure at his facility. It took about an hour and was very easy.
I am getting Rocephin from Infuserve America - 800-886-9222 for $39/total including all supplies. I didn't try to get insurance to pay for the first month because I had no luck with my daughter before. But with her and her IV Invanz I have been pay Infuserve and they bill my insurance. Periodically they do pay for something and I get a credit on my credit card for anywhere from $100-$600. So, they may get Anthem to pay for part of it down the line.
I hope this info is helpful to someone.
