I have Blue Cross Blue Shield of New England.  They are an amazing insurance company and are paying for my Gastric Bypass which is scheduled in the next 4 weeks.

I'm over 400lbs but only have stretch marks on my stomach area. I'm going to do everything thing I can to prevent having too much excess skin but I'm nervous that there is nothing I can do to prevent it.

Has anyone out there gotten Plastic Surgery for Excess Skin Removal covered by BCBS?  Was it a huge fight or an easy process?

I have BCBS PPO of New Jersey and they paid for my tt.  My surgeon submitted pictures of my breast and belly with no documentation of rashes or anything.  They approved the tt, but denied me for the breast lift.

Good luck!'

HAVE BCBS MA. i JUST GOT MY TT APPROVED BY MY INSURANCE, AND I AM ALSO SUBMITTED FOR THIGH LIFT TOO.... WE WILL WAIT AND SEE.

When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life.

I have BCBS Empire out of NY but I am in RI - it is a PPO... What conditions (if any) did they document?  How low does your pannus hang?  Mine is not very low...

If you can look in the mirror naked and NOT see  your vagina/rash/back problems documents they will cover it. Email me if you want more information.
