MEDICAID AND MEDICARE SURGEONS LIST!

on 8/31/12 8:40 pm - Irvine, CA
Hello Members,

On a daily basis we get calls from members in desperate need of surgeons that will accept Medicaid and or Medicare for Bariatric surgery.  It breaks our hearts when we have to say "we don't know of any surgeons in your state we can refer you to". 

Can you please help us? If you know of any surgeons in your state that accepts Medicaid and or Medicare, will you list their:

Name

If they accept Medicare and or Medcaid

Phone number

Facility

Address

This list will remain here for our members to access and use.

Thank you so much!!!

Dr Eric Bour does Medicare  not sure about medicaid.  I have Medicare and he is going to do mine.  His office is a Center of Excellence so I know he can do Medicare patients.

I was wondering if you know if your doctor knows of any doctors in the state of Texas that does the GB surgery. I have searched and searched and have had no luck. I only have medicaid and they will not except that. They only except medicare and I am only 37 and I don't think that I can get that type of insurance unless I am at least 65 or older. I really don't know much about the procedures of GB so if you can help in any way much would be appreciated. You would be a blessing to me and my daughters.

Thanks for your help!

Mrs. Jackson
