Hey, Just writing to let you know that Jackson north has a bariatric program and they take share of cost. I have share of cost and I have been preapproved for surgery already. I will be getting my surgery in about a month or so after all of the labs and the clearance from the psych and nutritionist. Good luck! let me know how it goes.

Shauntey, I have Florida Medicaid Share of Cost, and planning to have a WLS. Please, I need some information about how the share of cost works there.

How are you doing with the Medicaid stuff? Hope everything is okay. :)

I was wondering what you need help with.. Are you trying to find out the requirements for Florida medicaid? Let me know! I'm a medicaid patient and I may be able to help.. the requirements are different from state to state but they're similar in alot of ways.. depending on where you are, it's possible to have to be put on a waiting list.. OR have to find a bariatric surgeon with a center of excellence who also takes medicaid... anyways according to BMI and co-morbidity you should qualify for sure if you jump through the required hoops..
