okay after reading this I was like wtf. So let me start over. I signed up for the gastric procedure to have it done, at the time I was covered by my company's insurance policy. Well when they renewed their coverage they added gastric procedure to the exclusions list meaning they would not pay for them. For me this is a matter of life of death. I have tried traditional dieting it does not work for me. So anyway I am boned. One the plus side I am liquidating my transformers collection and my joe collection so I should be able to get about half of what I need. I need a total of $16,200 to pay for the procedure out of pocket.
