Kentucky Medicaid and revision

on 11/6/17 3:00 pm

I had the gastric sleeve done over 3 years ago and paid out of packet for the surgery. I'm looking to have a revision and now have Kentucky Medicaid and hoping they will cover it. Has anyone been on the same situation, I'm worried since I've had a previous Bariatric surgery even though I paid out of pocket that they will it pay for revision. Any input would be appreciated!!

Hi Kimmie,

Each state is different and every plan is different. If there is a medical reason for the regain they may pay for it. Give them a call and ask them if they pay for revisions and if so, what if any requirements you need to meet. If they pay for it then you will need to find a surgeon that takes your insurance and we can help you with that.
