Cash cost in the US

I'm new here. BMI bounces around 34-36 and I don't qualify re other health issues. So I have read the bypass surgery (have GERD so not looking into the sleeve) cost around 10K. Is that inclusive of the hospital stay, surgeon fees etc?

That's going to vary a lot by state. It's cheaper in Las Vegas, I hear, but here in Pennsylvania a self-pay surgery is going to cost me around $12k for the sleeve (which is an easier surgery to perform, so RNY would cost more; sorry, I'm not sure how much). That includes one night of hospital stay and the surgeon's and anesthesiologists' fees, plus 1-2 post-op visits. It doesn't include any of the required testing or the required meetings with the nutritionists and psycologist beforehand, but a lot of time insurance will help with those things, even if they're not covering the surgery itself.

I live in Kansas City and paid $15K for the by-pass. It includes Everything. KU Medical Center. Surgery is next Monday. Wish me luck.

Saw somewhere recently that Bariatric Surgery,is cheapest in Sour Dakota.. Is this true? I have heard of reduced rates in Michigan, Louisiana. Florida, Nevada and Texas, is this true?, is a pot at the end of the rainbow for someone seeking a more budget friendly area?

I have been doing my research for several months now. I was set
On ruling out Mexico but I keep ending up back to the OCC. I’m seriously leaning towards dr Ortiz.
