how long did approval take from your insurance? Did you pay anything out pocket after...
From the 1st visit with your surgeon to the day of surgery how long was the process? How long did it take your insurance to come back approved? I am going to seminar May 7th to get information and they take the insurance and talk to insurance company i guess start pre authorization process. . Did anyone have Medicaid and not have to pay anything out of pocket? I am in NJ and i found a Dr. The office said they work with all insurances.Which is good news and bad news for me. Now I seen this Dr 9 yrs ago for bypass i never went through with it because they wanted $2,000 upfront because other Dr didn't take medicaid. I really need this so I can be here for my son he will be 1 in July. I can't afford to pay out of pocket. Did this happen to anyone? Was there away around it? Did they just accept whatever your insurance paid? M

You should be able to find a surgeon that accepts medicaid. Call around....you should not have to pay anything at all if you have medicaid. Good luck!
I found 2 docotors that say they take medicaid... im just hoping they dont say well u need 2,000 tonoay rest of it... cuz i know my 10,000 emergency room bill the hmo only oaid 350... i have first seminar with 1 on may 7th... all they said was we work with all insurances... lol heres hoping :)

That's great! You should definitely not have to pay anything out of pocket. I have a type of medicaid which is paramount advantage...I was approved for weight loss surgery withing 3 days...and I don't pay a dime out pocket. I did all of the pre requirements though. Good Luck!
