Help with Gastric sleeve!

Doctor says Bariatric surgery is cosmetic
If you are unfortunate enough to have an insurance such as Medicare or Medicaid that does require a comorbid condition even with a high BMI, you are stuck. You will either have to pay cash or get a job with good insurance. I take care of many patient who have to pay out of pocket and we have a reasonably priced package that costs $11000 for sleeve gastrectomy.
