Minnesota Insurance Help!

on 10/30/14 2:01 am

I feel like I am losing my mind trying to find an insurance plan to switch through for WLS in Minnesota. I was on Tricare Prime because my husband was an active duty marine. He was medically separated, and now we have lost our coverage through Tricare. Please help I have been looking up plan after plan and have no been able to find one that covers bariatric surgery. I am already in the process of WLS my surgeon has already taken me on and I have qualified, I am hoping I didn't do all of this work for no reason.ReplyQuoteMember Serviceson 10/30/14 8:44 am - Irvine, CA

Both my insurance and my husband's insurance had exclusions for WLS.  I searched to find an independent policy to cover the WLS and found that there really isn't any private plans that cover it.  That was two years ago.  My best advice for you is to sit down with an insurance guy-- he'll know what's out there and what your choices are.  I ended up self-pay.  It was expensive-- but also the best decision I ever made. 

Good luck to you!  I hope you find something that will cover it...
