I have staywell and they require 6 months not a year. The closest place to you which is the doctor I will be going to is Tampa Bariatric Center at the Tampa General Hospital. Dr. Murr. Your first step will be the orientation which is a requirement. They will tell u EVERYTHING u will need at the orientation. Schedule that ASAP. The faster u do the faster u will get ur surgery. Good luck
Shands at UF does take medicaid because that is who I am going through for my surgery. They have an intake seminar every 2nd and 4th tuesday night from 6 to 7 pm in room 1210 (by the cafeteria) it is free and it is mandatory for anyone who is interested in how the process works. the phone number is (352)265-0535 and the Lady that does the scheduling's name is Amelia. any other help I can be just email me with any questions and if I don't know the answer , I'll try to find it out for you!

As the nurse explained with Medicare you have to be approved as a Center of Excellence Member, Which I do not see Dr Shewami as one yet. The same is for Dr Hoddinott which is now with Dr Overcash.
I do not have my date of surgery yet, but hoping to be within a month.
