First enroll : Gastric by pass is not some thing like removing a mole from you on same day. First you have to enter a program , under go series of tests , psychological evaluation etc, try with medications , diet , change of life style & prepared to keep it for life time as it is rarely reversed. First enroll in a program, they may help you to get medicaid insurance
