My pain and nausea meds for after surgery were also included. My consultation was $200 and I guess kind of a down payment. It was included in my total quoted cost of $13,900 total though. My final cost may have been a bit less since insurance covered the hiatal hernia repair..

Do you have insurance? What is your coverage? What is your deductible? What is your out of pocket max for the year?

I have insurance that covers bariatric surgery. It paid for my band and will also pay for my revision to bypass. I have a 500 deductible which I already met. My out of pocket max is 1000. I admit my insurance is pretty good and so glad I have it. Surgery is expensive and the biggest fees are for the hospital, not the Dr. I had thought of getting sleeve cash pay and got a quote of 18 K and that included band removal and hernia repair. The surgeon said his fee was only 3000 and the rest went to the hospital....ridiculous!!! This is why so many people go out of the country. Not everybody can afford that much.

Ive been approved by my insurance. I have a high deductible plan that is almost met. I'm estimating that I will only have to pay around 700 or 800 dollars for this procedure just wasn't sure if the meds were included. I should be getting a call here soon to go over payment with someone from the office. Just hope they can take a smaller down payment instead of a large lump sum.

My insurance does not cover WLS. Only thing it paid for was one blood work. It sucks bc 30k out of pocket is a lot of money but it is what it is.

My insurance covers everything completely. I meet with my surgeon tomorrow to get my date!!!! I will have a $20 copay for tomorrow's visit and I've had to pay 2 other $20 copays. So in the end I'll have paid $60 pre-op and if they prescribe any medication after surgery my co pays will not be higher than $10 each. We are blessed with very good health insurance.
