MEDICAID AND MEDICARE SURGEONS LIST!
I have contacted all doctors shown and then some.... every office says they dont take Medicaid. My doctor told me she would write up a note for me to get the surgery because I am a prime candidate and has her nurses lookin into finding someone that takes Medicaid But I have been searchin for a long time now and keep hitting dead end roads. I am so upset and feel I dont have mant more years if I dont get help soon. I want to see my kids grow up. I keep praying and hope somethin good happens for me soon.

800-588-5300 and was told they take Louisiana Medicaid if your doctor will fax a referral.
She called today...Now they will ONLY do the LAP Band....and not RNY...
I hope this at least helps someone...

I am a candidate for the gastric vertical sleeve procedure and am Medicaid recipient. I started my process with Tulane and due to personal/family reasons had to stop. I resumed the process in 02/2013 through Ochsner then in May 2013 Ochsner decided not to renew their LaCare contract. I am now stagnant in my process due to the insurance change and am currently awaiting to either get switched from my current plan to another Medicaid plan that Ochsner does accept OR have Ochsner submit an out of network request to Medicaid so that i can move forward and get my surgery scheduled. This has been a nightmare and I have looked up options to help pay for the surgery, but haven't had ANY success. If anyone knows of anything to help me, please help! Thanks!!!
