My friend had to do that method of paying to she had to pay the hospital their portion and then the doctor his portion as well she took out a loan to get what she needed. Well you do what you feel you need to you'll be in my prayers.
I did call them. You have to get separate quotes. Some from the hospital and one from the physician. They don't make it friendly at all for self pay as some doctors do. In any event, I cannot afford them so will having my surgery August 5th with Dr. Aceves in Mexico. For aftercare, I will use my PCP or my gyno.
Have you called their office at the weight management clinic to ask about the cost? There are also loans you can take out as well if needs be my best friend had to take out a small bank loan to get her surgery! I'd be a bit leery about going to Mexico for surgery, I mean you do have to have follow ups for the rest of your life it is important to have a good doctor and close by but that's just my two cents.
I live in Rock Hill SC and I went to Charlotte. I used Dr Melkonian at Carolina Surgical. I highly recommend them. They have an office on Randolph Rd and one in Matthews. The have support groups too.
Good Luck to her!
My Boyfriend & I inquired first about the new FDA approved diet pill, Qsymia. We met all health requirements BUT found this out too. That SC STATE covers NO weight loss help. My boyfriend was searching further into bariatric surgery sounds more sensible & long-term safer effect. If someone else or you has found or find out anything different, I welcome your help/ suggestions. I find it hilarious we are in the "grease frying" state but the insurance won't help with lowering BMI. I know we got here ourselves but not wanting to die young. THANKS!

I was wondering if you could tell me what his surgeon's fee is. I was supposed to get an email today with that info, and I didn't now the office is closed, and we have to have it by my pre op on Friday. I'm so excited, I just want to get my ducks in a row! Thanks in advance!
After much research I was able to obtain the answer myself and am posting it here in case anyone else wondered. They have extended the study through 2014. They state that this does NOT mean that they will cover WLS after that time. So, basically, wait for two more years and it MIGHT happen or might not.
