Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Well I had my Bypass done at Soundshore Medical Center in New Rochelle, New York. The doctors name is Leonard Maffucci (sp) his team mate is Madhu Rangraj. Im awful at spelling their names but you can find them here: A Medical Service

Do you contact them or do you want (me) to contact them? I'm not sure how this works...

Hope that helps!

I'm new here, and had my WLS 3 years ago, in Mexico....insurance wouldn't pay here, and the cost was very prohibitive, so I went to Dr. Gilberto Ungson, in Hermosilla, Mexico....it was, without a doubt, the most fantastic thing I could have ever done. Other than the language barrier, there were really no problems, and the difference in cost was phenomenol! I was treated like a princess, the medical care was outstanding, the doctor even came to my hotel room after discharge to check on me...it was a great experience for me. I could never have afforded it state side....I can't say enough good things about the doctors or the hospital...Dr. Ungson was, and still is an outstanding man. They all were....I guess I need to shut up, I could go on forever about Dr. U and the whole process....3 years ago, and I went in at 356 pounds, I now weigh 136.....it has changed my life totally! WOW! That's all I can say....wow....

Dr Barry Sanchez is great! I have also heard wonderful things about Dr. Wetter and Dr. Foster his collegues at Mills-Peninsula Medical Center. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sanchez. They work out of Burlingame, CA (SF Bay Area). Thinner Future

I agree with Frootloop, ALSA is the best, I had Dr. Boone. I was impressed by the seminar, which convinced me I needed this surgery, and I love everyone in the office, and the nurses, I have needed them on the phone a few times and they are readily available. They don't "overbook" patients, so you don't feel like a "file" to them, you are a person.
