MEDICAID AND MEDICARE SURGEONS LIST!

He's a wonderful doctor and I wouldn't have changed to a different doctor for nothing. Unfortunately I have had many many problems since (NOT related to surgery) and have gained about 80 lbs. out of the 180 that I originally lost. I can't walk far as I have a bad back and many many more problems which I won't go into. As I stated they are NOT related to surgery though. I just have to figure out something low impact where I can sweat but won't hurt my back.
I am also going through a divorce now and since I am on SSI Disability I was grarnted $800 in spousal support and with Medi-Cal that put me over the edge financially. I have a $1200 MONTHLY share of cost, which is ridiculous. I don't know of many doctors will accept just Medicare as a complete payment. You will need a secondary insurance (from what I understand).
I wish you the best of luck and you live and I am envious of the area you live in. I love Monterey. I live up in Yosemite, so I am lucky as well, but during the summer it gets hot as heck.
Good luck to you and write me anytime.
Check out the Kaiser "STEPS" program for low-income individuals or families. It's not the "walking steps program, but an actual insurance program within Kaiser for people having a hard time affording insurance. It's kinds hard to find on their website, but the info is there.
