Hi sweetie! I am so sorry to hear about the insurance giving you a hard time. I am looking into the sugery and am in the preliminary stages, attending orientation, working with my insurance co, United. My coordinator told me that as of 2006 it may not be covered due to them changing their policy to make it more difficult for us to get banded. Go figure! I am like you, ready to go down south or wherever I have to go to get WLS. What doctors have you researched? That sounded like a decent price if I have to selfpay. Hopefully not but...Well good luck to you! Liz

I pray you have a speedy recovery. Get some rest and keep your feet up. Keep fighting for your WLS. It will come. As the saying goes...All good things are worth fighting for. I had to fight a denial but I won in appeals. It will happen but you need to be your best advocate. I had Dr. Suh also. He is a wonderful doctor. Ask Mo for help with your insurance. Maybe she will have some tips for you. I will keep your fight in my prayers.
