Kaiser Permanente



Recommended Posts

Does anybody else have Kaiser Permanente as their insurance and also the medical center where their WLS will occur? It seems to be a one stop shop for me. I guess this is a good thing? Kaiser is huge anymore and I'm not sure if that's good or bad. Anybody have good or bad experiences with Kaiser in the Seattle area?

I went through the Kaiser Options program in Southern California and it was great. I started in November, and had my surgery on 5/2/18. The support is well rounded and the care is great. I’d highly suggest it. It cost me $655.

I have Kaiser Perm and live in the Seattle area. It is based in the Bellevue Medical Center. My policy does not cover WLS, so I have to self fund. If to search for the KP weight loss program in WA, you will get to their site so you can view the info.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
