Universal Health really sucks I have them. Humana Family has a dr in fl. only problem is they aren't taken anymore people in broward county. If you live outside of broward you can see if they are accepting where you are the have bariactic nutrition and everything.I hope to be able to switch in sept.
Dr. Todd Overcash
I just got off the phone with Dr. Overcash's office and they said that he is on a leave of abscence for 1-3 months or more and is not doing any surgeries.
She said Dr. Hoddinott is not a member of the Center of Execellence yet but may be soon.
My problem is I have Wellcare HMO with an out of network option/Medicare. My insurance is willing to pay, but trying to get someone to take Wellcare is hard since they don't take Wellcare - only Medicare. I talked to Dr. Overcash's office and they would have to talk to Wellcare, but then she said he was not doing any surgeries.
Flagler Hospital and Dr. Marema in St. Augustine, Florida both accept Medicare.
Dr. Marema's office number is 904-829-9577. You can find more information in the website at www.flaglerhospital.org under the Bariatric tab. Also under find a hospital you can read the reviews. They are awesome. Dr. Marema has had surgery himself and has great patient outcomes.
Good Luck to All!
Best Decision I Ever Made.
Now the prob with Medicare is you go thru all the hoops and you have your surgery and it is a toss up if they PAY for it. So most MD's want you cleared for making your own payments if Medicare falls thru. That is why so many dont accept/work with Medicare.
One of the most important subjects Medicare is interested in is your wanting to return to work. Lets face it they want you back to work and no longer in the system. Esp if your weight is the main detr to your working.
Best of luck to everyone. Would I do my R-N- Y again. In a second.
