So I was supposed to have my initial appt last friday except that our new insurance doesnt cover this doc My sis' doc who i was comfortable going to and their out of network is too rich for my blood
So I have to find a doc but Where should I look? I got alot of my info b/c my sis already had it and now I'm feeling really discouraged and like a Tgiving day float I want to get this surgery done in May before my knees give out
input would be really helpful as when i called my insurance they didn have anything in re to a bariatric surgeon even listed
Thanks

Try to get a waiver!

I got one for my husband because my BC/BS does not have a bariatric surgeon as a PPO, so they will now cover at the PPO level! 90% vs. the 60% for a non PPO. It is worth the phone call.
