I hope things are better with you. I am still waiting to have my first meeting. My sister had bypass 18 months ago in GA and she tell me all bout what is going on with her. She has lost over 100lb and is at IBW for 6 months. Hope to hear something soon almost 2 months.
My first bariatric appt at Dr Paul Ross' office went well. The next appointment is my first MWL visit. Im a little worried because I dont have a job yet. And for me to go through with the surgery I have to pay some things out of pocket. But I know I'll try my hardest to find a job. Wish me luck!
I attended my seminar and got the answers I needed. I have to complete the 6 months weight management, attend behavior modification classes and dietician classes, and my ins does cover everything but the therapy $250 and the 6 month behavioral/dietician classes $210. Heres to the first step of becoming a new me! I wanna see if I can become a jogger/runner!
Hey y'all! I saw on here where they were talking about the First Choice Medicaid. I researched and it seems First Choice does cover the gastric sleeve. But I am opting for RNY anyway. I think. Once I go to my seminar on the 9th I will know more. When I signed up for the seminar, the first question I asked was "Will First Choice Medicaid cover my sugery?" She then asked me my height and weight, and told me I autimatically qualify because my BMI was over 40. I told her I had at least one and maybe two co-morbidities and she said no worries, you qualify with just your BMI. She also led me to believe that since this was the case, I did not have to complete the 6 months of documented dieting and exercise. I have heard that the Surgeon I have chosen, Dr. Paul Ross, will require 6 weeks but not six months. Does anyone have anything to say about this? Ive heard so many different stories its hard to tell.
We have had such great response from people booking hotel rooms for our Raleigh Conference, that our initial room block at the Embassy Suites sold out!
