  • Cost of travel

    I recently planned to visit family in Little Rock. I had to plan my visit without dialysis. Why? My social worker told me Davita would charge me $90 per treatment. I was outraged and asked why. She then told the the charges could be reduced. What I want to know is wht would they charge in the first place? Don't we pay enough per treatment for them to cover travel?

    I am not aware of any such charges. When I traveled to DC last year from one Davita to another Davita and no charges. I suspect she is clueless. There seems to be an epidemic of that going around with Davita Social Workers. LOL
