Default WLS funding

Hi all! My insurance company has approved me having surgery. I just have one problem. I am trying to figure out how to come up with my deductible to pay for it. Does anyone have any ideals? Any suggestions? My deductible is $2500.

Some physicians have relationships with lenders, and they can help you get a loan. Other physicians will let you pay it over time. I suggest you talk with your surgeon's office about the payment options they offer.

and congratulations! which surgery are you planning to have?

I am going to have the gastric bypass as that is all my insurance will cover.
