I went to the website and all it tells me is to make sure my Part A and Part B deductibles are paid up.  Help!  I need to know their guidelines.  Diets, counseling, etc.


Thank you very much!

The only guidelines that I know of might be with your medicare supplement plan.  Check with them, if you have a supplement.

Call 1-800-MEDICARE and they will answer all your questions.  When I had surgery with Medicare five years ago, they did not require any supervised diet up front.  I think they did require a psych eval but they did not require counseling.

I'm sorry Angela.....what guidelines specifically are you looking for?  What procedure or surgery are you looking to have?
