Florida Medicaid pays for Gastric Bypass and the Lap Band. The sleeve is still considered "experimental" so they will not cover it.

I'm in Orlando and was wondering if you knew if Florida Medicaid share of cost paid for  the gastric bypass. I was told by Medicaid that my share of cost was $0. I'm trying to find a PCP right now to see if I can get a referral letter to attend a seminar.

all of FL Medicaid programs will cover gastric bypass. The trick is finding a surgeon that will accept it. I am going to a surgeon in Ocala, Dr. Hoddinott. He is out of Monroe Regional - it is a center of excellence. He takes medicaid and does an open gastric bypass (RNY).

US Bariatric in Ft Lauderdale, Orlando (Celebration) and soon in St Augustine are COEs, but the docs are opted out of Medicare. So patients would have to pay the surgeon's fee, but the hospital and anesthesia are covered by Medicare at the 80% of u&c.

Also, US Bariatric Orlando accepts UHC Medicaid.

 Not sure about the others - but the Dr in Orlando (celebration) is accepting medicare now.  He also accepts medicaid - but ONLY as a secondary to medicare.  His name is Dr. Kim - their website is: http://www.floridabariatric.com/bariatric-surgery-informatio n/questions-and-answers and he is AWESOME!  
GL to all

I just called Dr. Kim and the office personnel just told me that they DO NOT accept Medicaid, nor is he willing to help sponsor or see someone that can't pay or that doesn't have insurance.  SAD to see that a well known DR. can't step up and at least help out.

My 2 friends had surgery with him and YES he is a great Dr. but what happens with those that are in need? Where do we go?

Does anyone know of a Surgeon that does accept MEDICAID, in the Orlando, FL..... area?? I need help please!

Have you contacted Shands @ UF?  (Dr. Ben-David or Cendan)  I don't know that they take it, but most Shands doctors do. You can call (352) 265-0111 and ask for the office of Dr. Ben-David.
