Ive been going through the motions necessary to be approved for the RNY through my current insurance company. Although surgery is not guarenteed, it is more than likely to be approved if I do everything they ask of me (Im on my last few steps - with a hopefully July surgery date). But now, there is a possibility that I will be changing jobs. The new job offers Kaiser insurance. Do any of you have Kaiser? Do they cover it?

My daughter is working with a Kaiser plastic surgeon on this issue now.....

All in all I think Kaiser SUCKS and the general health care I have received within their own internal program is below par BUT I am extremely grateful nonetheless for even being blessed with having a good job and health coverage, and the ability it gave me to have this already starting to be life changing surgery.
It may be a long road to travel for you before you get all your ducks in a row before surgery, but in the long run if you are like me you will not regret it and use the time in between to start learning everything you can about the various procedures before making your surgery choice, post op care, etc. Time will fly by fast. As it always does. The only regret I have like so many others on here that I read as well, is that I didn't do this sooner.
Good Luck on your future surgery and your possible new job!
Good luck to you!
