I was so excited about finally making the decision to get sleeved. After being told my insurance would cover it, I went to the cardiologist, made appointments to see a nutritionist, a pulmonologist, etc... and then was told my insurance will not cover the procedure! I am so upset!!! Now i'm thinking about trying to get a loan to pay for this. Has anyone had to self pay for the sleeve? Any recommendations of good and affordable surgeons in CT?

I'm from southern western mass and m insurance also doesn't cover the procedure. I wil be flying out of Bradley to Detroit for my surgery in two weeks. I did get a personal loan to cover the costs.

That's what i ended up doing. Took out a loan for 15k, and had the surgery in NC with Dr. heider. That amount covered everything including my flight and hotel.
