Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and I'm curious if anyone has had any luck getting a TT, BL/BR, or LBL covered by Medi-Cal or IEHP? I am still pre-op but I know how my skin was the last time I lost a ton of weight and how my body reacted (back/shoulder pain, rashes, ingrown hairs, yeast infections, it wasn't pretty.) At the time it was almost impossible to even get WLS covered by my commercial insurance I went to a PS and was denied right off the bat. Any help, direction, etc would be wonderful! Thanks Jo

Hey Jo, I'm sorry I can't help you with your insurance questions, I just wanted to welcome you to the board and say I hope you get everything you are looking for from your surgery. Take care, Mary
