MEDICAID AND MEDICARE SURGEONS LIST!
I know that Methodist Hospital in south Sacramento took Medi Cal 3 yrs ago, sure they still do. You want to contact Terri Smith, she's the coordinator for wls there. Also try UCSF Bariatric Surgery Center. Good luck.
When you sign up for Medi-Cal you have the option of choosing a health care plan. If you select Kaiser then you don't have to find a surgeon yourself, they send you to one. In San Diego they sent us to Pacific Bariatric (who doesn't accept straight Medi-Cal). Anyways, I spoke with the lady who approves the surgeries. She said they treat Medi-Cal as a regular plan (I won't have to pay anything for the surgery). So IF your having trouble consider switching to Kaiser.
Im new to Medi-cal through Cal-optima,,Iv not picked a "Health Network" yet.Im in Orange County,CA.,,I need to find a good surgeon that will take Medi-cal as payment.I have no family to help me so I could only travel "So Far" post op.I would love to find a Doctor with-in 50miles.
I wanted to go to Dr Owens in Orange CA.,,,,but its looking like they only work with "Molina Healthcare",,and there not on my Medi-cal list.
Its taken almost 2yrs to get Medi-cal,,and my health is getting worse,,,please I need help,,,I need avice
Thank you,God Bless,,Don
