2nd Meeting tonight

Went to a bariatric surgery informational seminar last week and going to another tonight. I think I have my mind made up already on the hospital that I would want to perform the surgery, but I want to make sure I at least look at both options in my area. It appears my insurance will cover me as my BMI and co-morbidities more than meet their criteria. The strange thing is my out-of-pocket costs are the same (less than $500) based on both programs in my area that perform bariatric surgeries, but the total anticipated cost of the procedure was wildly different. Hospital #1 a designated Center of Excellence estimated a total cost of $22k-24k for the procedure. Hospital #2 not a COE hospital estimated cost $14k-$16k. I wonder what one place does vs. the other?
