Info Needed

on 12/29/17 1:33 pm

I am needing to find out information. I am desperately needing the Vertical Sleeve done to lose weight. I even have medical neccessity for it. However, my insurance does not cover weight loss surgery and I cannot afford the surgery outright or even making monthly payments. Can anyone tell me how I can try to find an insurance company or program that will help me pay to have the surgery?

I know the Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America has a yearly grant program to help people.

Also I think Dr Alverez of Endobariatric in Mexico has a partial scholarship program.

Also contact the large hospitals in your area that do this. Call the surgeons offices and ask for advice.
