Dr Vivek Prachand and Dr Alverdy at University of Chicago both accept medicare. They are partners. They also do all three types of surgery that medicare pays for and do not push one or the other but try to taylor fit the surgery to each patient. I drove from SW MO (550 miles) to have mine done there and have the other half of the DS to get this summer there as well. I paid with medicare.

 
Stage 1 of DS (VSG) May 18, 2007

I don't understand as Medicare does not approve the VSG as either a standalone surgery or as a 1st surgery to be followed by a 2nd surgery for the switch. As you had this done in '08, you are fortunate. Since 2011, UC is not accepting medicare for DS. I'm told that this is because UC has encounted Illinois Regional Medicare's refusal to pay for a DS surgery that is interrupted for complications. Medicare reclassified the interrupted surgery as a VSG and refused to pay.

I'm from Chgo, but have to look elsewhere for a DS, and I'm left wondering that should my DS be terminated due to a complication, will Medicare refuse payment and leave the cost to me to pay.

I know someone who has Medicare and they told me that there is a website you go to to see what places take it. www.surgicalreview.org
