Anyone else financing?



Recommended Posts

I am financing due to being 38.5 bmi. The advantage is that I can be scheduled two weeks after meeting the surgeon! I believe the lapband is best for me. Anyone else financing?

Your member name defies me.

You are not going to have a lap band, surely? The success of gastric sleeve operations in substantially higher than lap band.

I'm confused.

Please explain.

Sent the sleeve. It was a typo LOL. I'm getting the gastric sleeve the second week of June and I don't know how to at my post. Please be kind.

and yes, I would never get a lap band. I have not heard of any long-term success as it seems to slip even years and years after being put in. My mom got a gastric sleeve six months ago and has had success.

Good luck on your journey and to answer your question, no sorry I didn’t finance. Insurance covered my surgeries.

I met with my surgeon today and I have a 36.9 BMI so I’ll be financing too. Waiting to hear from the finance rep to see how payments work. Did you have to do a down payment?

I too am financing / self pay.

I was going to go with Prosper but I did not like their interest rate. I am getting a loan from my credit union.

Prosper was very nice to work with.

Hi all - Am very upset to have learned that my "top flight" BCBS PPO will not approve my DS (being done 9 years after a sleeve). Have you found financing through your hospital billing/financial assistance office to be an option? Can't believe I may have to self pay.

Will they pay for RNY gastric bypass instead, or they won't pay for any bariatric surgery?

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
