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!

Have you had your surgery yet? If so how did it go? Can you tell what the process was leading up to surgery date and what appt and things you had to do to get approved. What type of medicaid do you need to see your Dr.? Hope your doing well. Thanks
