BCBS Coverage of Excess Skin Removal
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?

Hello I would like to get more information.... Thank you...
I first went to my PCP, and told her that I kept having rashes under my panni, that I was having back pain caused by it hanging, and it kept me from exercising to my fullest potential. I needed her to write a letter of medical necessity, and she did
Then I went to my cosmetic surgeon, and with that letter, and he submitted it witl his letter of medical necessity, and sent it off with the most embarrasing pictures ever taken of me, and was easily approved. I am currently awaiting approval of thigh lift, and I hope it goes through as easily ad the panni did.
