BLUE SHIELD GOLD CO PAY



Recommended Posts

Can anyone shed light on how much their surgery was? I have blue shield gold h m o 500/35 and was told they cover the doctor's fees but I am responsible for 20% of the hospital stay. Can anyone share how much they paid for surgery or give me any insight on how much $$$ I should prepare?

Thanks!!

My insurance was covered but I had to pay my deductible. When you call your insurance you should be able to ask how much you except to pay to meet the deductible.

For me it was 1500 deductible I had already met 200 of that so I paid 1300 for my surgery. Surgery itself was 32k.

My deductible is $500 and OOP Max is $6,500. They said I am responsbile for 20% of the hospital stay, whatever that amount is. Professional fees they cover.

Thanks for your response, really appreciate it.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
