- HEALTH TRACKER
I have straight Medicaid which I am told is different than the individual type that I think you are describing and they all have different criteria. At least that is what I am finding out. It is very complicated. I am not familiar with diabetes but apparently if they have trouble controlling it with conventional treatment then that could meet the requirement. I think they make it difficult just to weed out the vain people who may want to do if for just personal appearance and not because of health issues. I have appealed my denial and I'm hoping I have enough additional health issues to sway them.
Hi I am new at this staring to find and talk to doctors. I have Medicare and Meridian (medicaid ins.) What the heck is UNCONTROLLED Diabetes. I have Diabetes
How do you like Dr Wood. I have an appt with him June 6th Have never met him. Trying to check out his references. Any info.
I sent you a pm and friend request.
Has anyone had a revision done in IL by a Dr. Bipan Chand?
I have been in contact with his office and am starting the process of getting a revision and would very much like more information.
I went through the seminar and all the preliminary appointments for sleeve surgery and actually had surgery scheduled only to be denied because I didn't have an "uncontrolled life endangering event such as uncontrolled high blood pressure or diabetes". Has anyone got approved by Medicaid without an uncontrolled life endangering event? I have a higher risk for breast cancer recurrence because of my weight, lymphodema, reflux, esophagitis, hiatal hernia, chronic fatigue syndrome, a family history of obesity, cancer, high blood pressure and diabetes but no "uncontrolled life endangering event" they said. Please let me know your experience with Medicaid approval.
I have researched and found a couple of place for Medicaid but my problem is that Medicaid denied it because I didn't have an "uncontrolled life endangering event such as uncontrolled high blood pressure or diabetes". Has anyone got Medicaid to approve bariatric surgery without this?
Just checking to see if anyone out there has the same surgeon and surgery date as me, maybe we can buddy up. Let me know.
The only place I have seen the Optifast was in the hospital. I know all you in Canada seem to have to use it. I was made to use another product called betterMD thru out center, it is just WonderSlim in another box. Same stuff used by medical weight loss.
