Texas Star Amerigroup Medicaid surgeons

on 4/7/17 9:17 am, edited 4/7/17 1:47 pm

Hey everyone! I'm Ashley and I live in Irving. I'm trying to get gastric bypass or the gastric sleeve done. The problem is I'm a broke college student, a single mom amd I only have Texas Star Amerigroup Medicaid.

Is there ANY surgeon that takes Texas Star Amerigroup? I tried calling the surgeons listed in a thread that seems to be outdated. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Never mind he doesn't take it either. This is so frustrating.

Hi, were you able to get your surgery? I see you haven't been on here in a while. I'm about to get mine and I have a great surgeon in FT worth who takes that insurance.
