United Health Care Exclusions

on 2/23/13 10:30 pm

I have United Healthcare and there is an exclusion for Weight Loss Surgery in my employers policy. I've called a few times and have gotten conflicting answers about the exclusions. First I was told it would be looked at according to each case then I was told an exclusion is just that and will not be covered. Does anyone have any information about getting around an exclusion?

Renee B.  Who did you use in Mexico if you don't mind me asking? I have started checking into surgery there but I'm meeting with lots of resistance from my family. thank you for responding to my post concerning UHC.

I went to Dr. Arellano in Mexicali.  It's a safe city and driving distance from Phoenix.  602 539 0949.  If there is a WLS exclusion there is no getting around it.  It means a premium for WLS was not paid by the employer so they have no reason to cover it, they were never paid for the WLS to begin with.

United used to be one of the easiest to get to pay for WlS.
