If he sent your referral to the options program then once you complete all your requirements (Weight Loss, Options classes, Psych eval, support group etc.) then you meet with the surgeon and if you meet everything ur good to go... Nothing else once i started options came from my primary doctor he just had to send the initial referral for me to start options.

Co pays... For Chest X-ray, EKG, Labs, and appointments..... it depends on your plan with kaiser...... whatever your copays are for those things you will have to pay....... For me i got a copay when i went in and then was billed for an additional amount i think its totaled about 400 so far with labs, and all the copays over the last 5 months so its spread out a little but it just depends on your copay amounts you could always call and see what yours are if you dont know

Also i know once the surgery is done there are copays for that as well and copays for each night you have to stay in the hospital after surgery and i know mine is like 250 a night plush whatever the copay is for the procedure.

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
