Default Panniculectomy...info...ideas?

Hi. I lost roughly 200 lbs and need to get a panniculectomy. My doctor and two surgeons have determined that it's medically necessary, but insurance denied me last year and upheld the denial after additional information. They told me what additional steps I needed to take, but when I went back, the criteria had become even stricter to a point that it looks like I will be paying out of pocket.

Does anyone have any suggestions on paying for it or roughly how much it will cost?

I'm still going to try the insurance route, but it's been a bit like pulling teeth getting information on just what they need.

Thanks for any advice you can give
