Please look up Dr Duncan's office @ www.peachtreebariatrics.com. They take both insurances and don't charge you anything up front to put in your paperwork, unless of course, you ask for "extra' services from them, i.e. nutritional counseling.  Dr Hobson did my surgery and I have also heard good things about Dr Rashid and of course Dr Duncan is in the top of his field.  Keep us informed and good luck.

thank you so much pat for your reply, i will call them, that would be great because my regular pcp is located in jonesbro and my sister lives there in stockbridge. i have been fat all my adult years. and just got medicaid last year so i could start going to doctors about my healt. my pcp recommends the surgery, but i've been toldits hard to get medicaid to pay for it, so just remember me in prayer.  i am 41 years old and my bmi is 44.5, if i dont get something done so i wont live to be 50. thanks for your help.

Dr Duncan's office does take medicaid and there is no run around or upfront fees.  I had only heard of two people not approved for medicaid and both had a few more tests run and then got approved.  I am now 49 years old and living for the first time in a very long time.  Consider yourself in my prayers.  Good luck and keep in touch.

LOL I gave my surgeon $1,200.00 for "program fees" and now medicaid is being an ass. So I don't know if I just lost that money or not???    I'm in Limbo...........

sweetheart, if you will call dr. williams office they will tell you not to worry about sending in that  100/00, go  ahead and fill out the paper work and send in.when your surgery date is set and you go for the paper work on that then you will have to pay 250.00, but by then its a sure thing that youre getting the surgery, i was concerned with the same thing , but it worked out great had my surgery june 30 and am doing great. hope this helps

I went to Dr. Williams and was covered by medicaid. It was an easy process and they worked with you all the way. Call and ask for Jackie, she worked miracles with me. Ask her questions so you won't be wasting time and money. I started my process on the 3rd of the month and by the 30th i had my surgery, that's less than a month. Don't get discouraged, act in faith. GA medicaid is very laxed on their rules but hurry cause things will be changing fast. Let me know if you have any other questions. I didnt have to pay one penny, some however may have to pay a $250 co-pay. Good luck.
