Hey Jennifer!!! Welcome. I'm Emily. You can click on my name and look at my blog. I blogged my whole experience in Mexico to help anyone deciding on going. Its on page 3.
Prices may have changed in the two years. But it was 13G for open. You need to find your own flight and tell Luz, she will pick you up from the airport. Its Hermasillo, Mexico. You can check flights. For my mother and me, it was 2G from Florida to Hermasillo.
It was honest to God the BEST hospital experience I've ever had my whole life. Even my mother just raves and raves. The 13 G covered the surgeon, Ungson, asst surgeon, internists, sleep doc, How do you spell anasia?? lol 4 days hospital, 5 days hotel. You will need to pay cash for your meds, about 200 and I bought extra pain pills to take at home. If you travel with someone, they will need to take extra money to get food, there's hospital food andA FANTASTIC restaurant in the hotel.
I went to a wls support group at home before surgery and got a pcp that is pro wls. I saw her before I left, she did my pre op work up, that you have to fax to Ungson before he will schedule your surgery. I saw her post op 3,6,9,12, and then every six months. I use vitalady's labwork and diagnosis codes and never had trouble with insurance covering my labs.
Holla at me if you need anything.
