MAN! I about died when I looked on my insurance website and seen that my part that I have to pay for my first sleep study is $536. OMG! I won't even be paying that much for my surgery! AND I have to do a second one in October with the CPAP. *faint* This stuff is just not cheap.

I always looked at these things as an "obesity tax." It's the money we pay for medical items, larger clothes, extra food, etc., that healthy weighted people don't pay. Just look at it as a big bonus for losing the weight and staying healthy.

I always call them and set up a payment plan.  For that I would pay $100 a month for about a year.

Okay so I paid 16k for my surgery because my insurance wouldn't pay a thing. Take the $536 with a grain of salt.

True. But being a single mom, this is killing me.

Understandable. I'm not exactly rich due to medical debt, it sucks. I borrowed the money to make it happen.

Good for you checking first.  After being charged over $800 for a diabetes education class, I should know better to ask but I continue to mistakingly assume information is free.  Beware pre-WLSers, attending a post-op WLS group session could possibly have a charge attached.  Mine did, anyway.

Aaaww--according to my post history, there is 133 pages of my banter. Might there be a bill coming from OH for all that space?  I take it all back.
