    Paying for WLS

    Thank you all so much for responding! I’ve been thinking about the Mexico route because I’ve heard of so many people who’ve had good experiences. I’m just a little concerned about traveling right now. I guess if I could road trip it wouldn’t be so bad. @MIKEYY84lol. Very little money to spare. I’m just finally mentally (as much as possible this early) ready to do it. I wish my insurance would cover it, but they will not. Plus, with self-pay I don’t have to wait as long. Even with self-pay, I would probably have to finance. Unless I went to Mexico. It’s just helpful to hear how other people have made it happen
  2. Hi all, Not sure if this is in the right place, but I had questions about how you all paid/are paying for surgery? I've been looking at self-pay options, financing, and CareCredit. After waffling back and forth for the last year, I have decided I do want to pursue surgery. My insurance will not cover it. So, I am looking at all my options. I'm still a little wary, only because I also am set to being graduate school in the next year and I am afraid of blowing up my finances. I'm just looking for stories of how you all made it work when it was not covered by insurance. Covid is also making it difficult. I had considered traveling to Mexico, but it doesn't look like that is going to work. I don't know that I feel good about traveling like that. Then, someone mentioned Blossom Bariatrics in Las Vegas for a lower priced, good, self-pay option. Anyway, any input would be appreciated. I want this. I just am not quite sure how I'll make it happen. Thanks in advance!
