MEDICAID AND MEDICARE SURGEONS LIST!
on 3/21/12 10:14 am
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).
Also, US Bariatric Orlando accepts UHC Medicaid.

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!

Hi April. I live in Orlando. I found a surgeon at the Tampa Bariatric center. They accept medicaid. I have staywell. I already attended the seminar and am now in the process of getting all of my clearances done. I'm just starting the process and my INS co request me see a nutritionist for 6 months. So hopefully I will have my surgery in June or July. Hope this helps. The perform the bypass, the sleeve, and the lap band. I'm excited
