poke with the president of the ASMBS, Dr. Scott Shikora who discussed new developments in bariatric surgery. Dr. Shikora commented by saying, "I believe we are on the cusp of the next great revolution which is even less invasive procedures." He also addressed the growing trend of insurance company denials for obesity treatment by stating, "The trend is for healthcare and insurance companies to tighten up or restrict access..." he went on to encourage patients to appeal denials by insurance companies or even seek legal council to assist them with access to treatment. He closed the interview by stating "If our patient put up the same protest that breast cancer patients and HIV patients put up, we would ultimately win."

BariatricTV.com also talked with Barbara Thompson of the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) (www.obesityaction.org). The OAC is an educational and advocacy organization dedicated to giving a voice to those affected by obesity. Ms. Thompson commented on the OAC's ability to help state workers in Texas retain their rights for obesity treatment. She went on to discuss the OAC's involvement in requiring Blue Cross Clue Shield of Tennessee to drop the requirements of an IQ Test for patients seeking bariatric surgery in the state. When asked how patients can help the OCA with it's mission Ms. Thompson encouraged them to write or email there representatives in Washing to express their opinions. "This is such an important time with healthcare reform coming up this summer" stated Ms. Thompson "We want to make sure there is treatment for obesity included in that."
