Bariatric surgery

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Does anybody know if this type of surgery is usually covered by insurances? I know plastic surgery isn’t but what about weight loss surgery it’s something I am considering if a year of trying doesn’t help

    Some insurances may cover SOME of the costs but not all

    It is not covered by my insurance. You will have to check your policy and then there us the question whether it is medically indicated or "cosmetic" (Insurance Company word)

    It depends on the type of insurance you have. My company does not cover bariatric surgery due to the cost.
