When I first heard about this procedure and Dr. I was super excited for the possibility of this life-changing opportunity. ( this being my third consultation/seminar in three states in 15 years ) After my consultation I was extremely positive feeling that finally I might've found the answer. I had spoken to many people in Arizona who had had this procedure ( some being covered by Medicaid) and was thinking positively about the possibility of my insurance covering a part of it. When the associate called me back and told me I didn't have bariatric coverage on my health insurance I was extremely discouraged. I was told that if I had a hiatal hernia it could be covered under general surgery. ( but I don't have a hiatal hernia) I was never offered any other way for a payment plan, discount, or any other option for payment. I was told they were sorry and have a nice day. Apparently only certain people are able to have this procedure.
