    Have you ever considered Mexico for surgery. My ins. Would only cover 40% of sleeve surgery. Mexico is less and I am only waiting about 6 weeks . Sent from my XT1055 using the BariatricPal App

    Try "a lighter me" they have a Facebook page with a large following . Lots of info. They are in Tijuana mexico
  11. I was talking about if you have surgery in Mexico and need to be treated back in the United States for aftercare. Most insurance companies won't touch you most emergency rooms have to accept you and treat you but your insurance does not have to pay for it most likely they will refuse as a result from surgery out of the country Sent from my XT1055 using the BariatricPal App
  12. I am currently looking into Medical Tourism ins. Reading the fine print. I so have a few questions. Otherwise chances are if your insurance does not cover surgery it will not cover bariatric or anything after surgery when you get back home. The chance of something happening is pretty slim but it does happen. Sent from my XT1055 using the BariatricPal App

    Self Pay in the U.S.

    When you are paying for you own surgery, you look for price first and research later. I have been researching for a year now. I am ready. I understand the positive and the negatives of the surgery. And in my case the positives outweigh the negatives. If people are willing to take their lives in their hands and travel to Mexico for surgery. There are many accredited and highly skilled surgeons in United States offering low rates. They do these surgeries everyday. It just so happens in my home state prices for self-pay at bariatric surgery are very high. So yes I will travel to another state for surgery if it saves me money .
