Have yourself a merry little lapband. Make your waistline small. From now on your blubber will be miles away. Ah yes, the great old Christmas carols. Hey, speaking of Christmas and lapband surgery, I was driving on 635 W yesterday and saw a billboard for LapBand 101. It shows a girl on it in a sort of Santa suit holding out a present. I guess the present is the special deal they advertise on their website. Their is supposed be a new Dallas location grand opening where you can get a procedure done for $8,900. That’s pretty good (if it’s true) because a lot of simple lap-band procedure can cost you twenty-five grand.
You know how some people make their living finding you the cheapest electricity provider? That seems to be what LapBand 101 does with weight-loss surgery with their competitive edge program. Their website says that their competitive edge program is “designed to create competition for your surgery between participating experienced, board certified surgeons, as well as accredited, even “Center for Excellence” designated facilities.” The idea is to give you good care at discount prices. Not a bad concept. I wonder if it works.
How will you pay for all this? Good question. LapBand 101 will check and see whether your insurance will cover, or partially cover the procedure. They don’t charge anything for this service. Or if want to do something like an extended payment plan they have an outside healthcare finance service available. The healthcare finance service is called CareCredit. CareCredit is ideal for co-payments, deductibles, treatment and procedures not covered by insurance.
Another cool feature of LapBand101 is that you can talk to someone who has already had the procedure done and ask how it went, what to expect, etc. They can tell you about their personal weight-loss experience and give you more information about how you can save money with the competitive edge program. Just call 1-800-968-7957 to speak to on of these coordinators. You should also check out their website at www.lapband101.com if you are at all interested and want to find out more information.
