Hello Members,

On a daily basis we get calls from members in desperate need of surgeons that will accept Medicaid and or Medicare for Bariatric surgery.  It breaks our hearts when we have to say "we don't know of any surgeons in your state we can refer you to". 

Can you please help us? If you know of any surgeons in your state that accepts Medicaid and or Medicare, will you list their:

Name

If they accept Medicare and or Medicaid

Phone number

Facility

Address

This list will remain here for our members to access and use.

Thank you so much!!!

St. Francis in Hartford is a Center of Excellence...Dr. Barba accepts Medicare...not sure about Medicaid....Dr. Aranow in Middletown also accepts Medicare

WE ARE PUT ON THIS EARTH NOT TO SEE THROUGH EACH OTHER...BUT TO SEE EACH OTHER THROUGH

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one
hand,  mudslide in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and
  screaming !   HOT DAMN.....WHAT A RIDE!!

BECOME THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE

I had my surgery at St Rafael's Hospital in New Haven, with Dr. Nadzam. I have Medicare & Medicaid as my supplemental and they covered everything except the first consult with the nutritionist and the psychologist. That cost around $300. A very small price to pay comparatively.

In order for it to be covered by Medicare?Medicaid in CT the surgery needs to be performed at a Center for Excellence. Hartford Hospital's program falls into this category.
