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.

Sherry I have also called  all the doctors listed above and then some ad gotten the same reply , "NO WE DO NOT ACCEPT MEDICAID".  Like yourself I'm a candidate, but there's noone out there that's able to help.  I will continue to pray for not only you, but all the other people that are out there the needs the help to become healthy.  I will continue my search as long as it takes ans I ask you to believe and do the same.  I'm only 30 yrs old and I do believe that God is going to make a way for not only me but for others to have the surgery to live 30 plus more years.  Again keep on with your search as I will and if i hear of any changes/doctors i will let everyone know. Take care and be blessed....

My cousin called Tulane in New Orleans at
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...
