I hate being crass, but the world needs more transparency, and nowhere more than in medicine. Many people feel that their only option is to pay over $20,000 at home, or to go far away to Mexico for surgery.
We routinely do Hospital cases for Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy for less around $16,000 (including stop-loss insurance coverage), and Surgery Center for $12,000.
We are getting started with telemedicine also, to make travel easier, while still having a good relationship and getting more value from the trips patients do make.
For January, I will do telemedicine visits for free for initial patients. We do have limited slots, so call Kim to schedule. 801-746-2885
The program we use is free to you, but has more privacy protection than Skype or FaceTime. It is an easy download app to your smartphone, tablet, or computer (Android or Apple) It is called VSee, and I will be posting a simple video on how to set up. No special equipment required, as long as your device has a camera!
December is now here, and if you don't have good insurance coverage for 2015 - despite overwhelming medical evidence, why not find out about your other options? We often do get people approved, even when they have been denied fair access, but you won't know until we try!!!
