Topic: RE: Medicaid/ SC

Your surgeons office will know all the requirements needed. I have the same insurance, first choice, & my surgery date is march 23rd. There's a lot you have to do, 6 months documented weight loss management, psych evaluation, EGD, get pulmonary clearance, & cardiac clearance. Don't get your heart set on the gastric sleeve because insurance won't pay for it. If you're a smoker...QUIT!!! Surgeon will refuse to do the procedure, plus it's REALLY bad for your health!!

Topic: Medicaid/ SC

Does anyone know the rules for medicaid and bariatric surgery? I saw some posts that were all more than two years old and medicaid changes like crazy. Because of my family/sleep doctor, I can only used First Choice once my medicaid approval comes through. 

 

Please let me know if you have any information. I have proof of weight loss in the past and that it didn't help my high blood pressure (fall 2012-spring 2013) During this time of weight loss, I developed MORE health issues that have since caused a more than 60 lb weight gain. . . (just for a little back ground) 

 

Thanks
