MEDICAID AND MEDICARE SURGEONS LIST!
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:
If they accept Medicare and or Medicaid
This list will remain here for our members to access and use.
Thank you so much!!!

After looking over all of their physicians, I liked Dr. Gonzalvo the best. What got me is reports that he shows up at support group meetings when he doesn't have to just to see how people are. His office link is here: http://www.asawest.com/oursurgeons.php Remember that for medicare you have to go through the hospital first, I'm just putting in the link so you can check him and his partner out. They assist each other during surgery.
I called, as I live in Pensacola... He no longer takes medicaid... He accepted healthease, but since Healthease has stopped providing coverage to Escambia Co residence and so Dr. Nye had to stop excepting new patience.
When I asked about medi-pass/straight medicaid she said "we haven't been approved yet"
so, I am hoping that ment they are trying to get on board with another state funded insurance... I hope so, cause right now Miami is the only option I have.
Thanks for posting! I'm still going to try even if I gotta do a doctor supervised diet
