Hi,

I need to know if there are any thal clinics in Houghton, Michigan or Rolla, Missouri? I may come to either of the places next year.

Even there is no clinic in the specified city, is there a nearest clinic I can go to?

Help...

Hi Namitha,

Your best bet is to contact Eileen Scott from CAF. She should be able to guide you to suitable hospitals in those areas.

Hello Thal pals! I'm very new to this site. I have a 4 yr old son who has Beta Thal Major and we are getting him treated at John Hopkins. My husband and I have chosen LA Children's Hospital for his BMT in the near future.  Does anyone know if LA Children's or  Texas Children's Hospital has done the most BMT's for  Thal patients?

Thanks,
Lo

Even I have plans to visit US with my thal major son late this year. Please guide the process for blood transfusion. Also, I want to know if the expenses for transfusion and related tests medicines are covered under medical insurance in US or not.

-Thanks

Parin2005,
Try contacting Dr. Chung at UCDavis healthcare...here in US, the blood transfusions generally happen in out -patient clinics of the hospitals. Generally you work with the child's hematologist to setup the protocol and logistics.

Parin,
you can look up online from the United healthcare services website their authorized providers. or, you can also call their customer service to find out. or you can also call the doctor's office to see if they take a particular insurance.
