Florida Staywell covered surgery



Recommended Posts

When my husband and I moved here, we didn’t have jobs so I applied for Medicaid for us while we were looking. And we got approved. I found out a couple of months later that Staywell/WellCare might possibly cover bariatric surgery so I gave it a chance. In 4 months I was completely approved and operated on yesterday. Woohoo!

Let me know if you have any questions. I’ll try to help as much as I can!

Hi! Congrats on your surgery! I'm at the tail end of my pre approval process. I have staywell as well. What did your process consist of? I know you said it took 4 months. I had to do 6 months weight loss trial, ekg, sleep study, bloodwork, etc. Just wondering what all you had to do get approved so quickly? Definitely gives me hope that I'll get approved soon!

Hello! I have staywell as well, and I’m just starting the process. I had a to do a seminar before I was able to submit my paper work the staywell to see if I can be approved for surgery. If I am, I have to meet with the surgeon to do all the steps with him.

Hey all! I have a recommendation for a doctor in Hudson, Fl. Dr. Fridley with Surgical Associates of Bayonet Point. He is a very caring, intelligent, and patient-centered doctor. Highly recommend. Takes most insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid. Also has some great rates for self-pay. The office also has a dietitian and support groups. Info seminars are twice a month or just call the office for info from the front desk.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
