Hello Everyone -
So I was banded in June of 2007....almost 10 years later I weigh almost twice as much as I did when I had the lap band. It wasn't an effective tool. After some soul searching & a life coach, I decided it would be best to pursue gastric bypass surgery. I was set to go & getting appointments out the way. However, I was out of work and on Medicaid. I started a job almost a year ago and unfortunately, they do not offer WLS under their health insurance. I've been still going to my appointments with the faith that next year I will have a new employer that will offer WLS as an option.
I'm reaching out to you all because I don't want to apply to companies that don't offer it under their health insurance plans. I would appreciate if someone would respond by stating which employers you know FOR SURE, that offer WLS under their health coverage options.
Thank you so much....
Good to see a familiar face I too had lap band surgery in 06/2008 and I have gained all my weight back and more as well I am in the process now of converting to the sleeve. I hate I failed and I also hate that I did not do this at first. I work at Social Services and I know they offer it on there insurance plan I am in VA as well about a hour form Richmond.
