Medicare will charge 20% of covered expenses to the patient. Dr's office estimated it at about $700. The hospital charged the Medicare deductible of almost $1100. This has to be paid yearly for hospital stays. The rest of the bills so far have not added up to $30. If your friend cannot afford the deductible, is it possible she may qualify for Medicaid? If not the hospital has charity care for the deductible but you must meet income and savings criteria. If you need any more info PM me. Hope this helps... Dotti

I had my surgery thru NJ Bariatrics and I have Medicare only. They are in Monmouth Junction on Rte 1 near Princeton. Princeton University Medical Center is a Medicare "Center of Excellance" and therefore accepts Medicare. I applied for charity care for the balance of my expenses there. NJ bariatrics was wonderful.

Dr. Yves J. Manigat, Echelon Bariatrics of South Jersey in Voorhees takes it was well - or he use to.  He operates out of Our Lady of Lourdes in Camden, NJ.

Just to update the posting for NJ Bariatrics - they recently moved their offices to Plainsboro. 

No argument about the excellent service - they're wonderful.  Both my husband and I have had surgery performed by Dr. Brolin and they're terrific.  We do have private insurance, but if the other poster was able to use Medicaid or Medicare, I'd give them a call and ask!
 So far, so good.

Call your provider.  All NJ FamilyCare providers have doctors who provide WLS for patients (based on your jumping through the hoops they set for you).

Good luck.
 So far, so good.
