In the past Medicare has agreed to pay for DaVinci Robotic surgery. If you are on regular partB with a gap policy you will need your urologist to contact and gain their approval. They paid for mine through an HMO plan.
If you are in a medicare+choice plan such as an HMO. PPO or Fee for service you will need your doctor to get approval from your insurance plan.
The only problem you might find is if your doctor will not accept Medicare payment. You can usually get that information from the business office of your doctor.
Sorry. I can't help you with selecting a surgeon in Nevada or Utah. I'm sure other people here can advise you.
