Unfortunately my insurance at work will not cover any type of WLS, regardless of medical necessity. I've explored I think every avenue and felt hopeless. I stumbled upon Belight Weight and found nothing but positive info on them. Their self pay price is $6800 for a gastric sleeve, and offer in house financing. Though traveling to Mexico makes me nervous, I think that is the only real route for me to pursue as this is becoming a life or death situation for me. Does anyone have any experience with this company, doctor, or Star Medica in Juarez MX (Borders El Paso TX)?
What are some positives and negatives I can expect, don't be afraid to tell it like it is without sugar coating.
