Nevada Medicaid Sleeve

on 11/10/11 4:46 pm - North Las Vegas, NV
I had the lapband done 2 years ago but have been having problems. I would like to get it removed and have a sleeve done instead but I have Nevada medicaid. I was told that they don't cover the sleeve. Can anyone give me any information on this? I did find a article online stating that they were considering covering it earlier this year but haven't found any other info.

As far as I know it still isn't covered by medicaid or medicare. What is wrong with you band is Dr Umbach able to fix it?
