I would recommend you BEWARE of their assessment of your insurance all
together. I was told that the procedure would not be covered under my
insurance. So I put the cost (approx $14,000) on a credit card. Eight
months later I contact my insurance about my sleeve procedure and THEY
WOULD COVER IT. So I filed a claiM...only to be told by Dr
jOURNEYLITE office that the procedure was actually $38,000 (they were
giving me a "bargain" at $14,000 because the insurance would not pay)
and any more $$ that my insurance paid they would take. This is AFTER I
PAID $14,000. They did refund approx $4000 from the "Dr
this facility, but the surgical part they re-billed as $38,000 when I
requested they send the info to my insurance
It's a scam. I also have Medicare but they did not process my claim thru Medicare.
If I were to do it again I would go to the one at
First turn off was that I had to sign a waiver that they could take photos of me (before and after) to use in **advertising** and also sound bytes of my voice. Did NOT like that at all.
Secondly, he came in and he was almost as fat as I am! I found it a bit disconcerting to have an extremely overweight WEIGHT-LOSS Dr. tell ME how to loose weight!!!
Thirdly, the Dr. obviously didn't give a "flying Walenda" about me, my health or my questions. He started out by asking me "which surgery do you want?" I told him that I was trying to decide between the lap-band and the lap-band with plication - what did he recommend? He told me that "he expected his patients top have done the research on what surgery THEY wanted on their own and make their decision before coming to him." THAT also turned me off. I explained to him that I did not get enough information about the benefits of one over the other at the seminar. The only thing I had to base a decision on was that the Lap-Band with the plication was $400.00 more expensive than the regular lap-band. So he said a few words about the difference in the two and (of course) suggested that I get the more expensive option. (Not a big surprise there!)
Then the coup-de-
So, he sent his nurse/finance person in to talk to us.I told her that we had been quoted a price of $9,900.00 and that was to include the cost of the Dr. appt, tests, dietician, psychology appt, surgery, anesthesia and hospital cost. And she said that "she was very sorry, but we were quoted the wrong price!" So I said, you should TELL people this at the seminar (which you are required to attend before you can even get an appt. with the Dr.). And her reply was that the seminar was to educate people about the surgery procedure. Not the cost of it. Funny, I received the cost information and it didn't say a WORD about cost being different if you weighed over 350 pounds! (I wonder what happens to people who weigh over 450 pounds!)
And THEN, as she was going over the cost of having the surgery done at
Our insurance will NOT cover Bariatric Surgery, so I have to "self-pay" and I guarantee you, I will not be paying anything to this Dr. OR ”
