Geha revision question

on 3/3/18 5:15 pm

hello guys. I'm new to this group. I had lapband in September of 2016. I never lost any weight. Not even a pound. It just wasn' for me. It would be either too right or tool lose but it never seemed to work. I went to two different doctors... anyways my question is can I get a second surgery if my insurance already covered the lapband????

Because everyone insurance is different,- nobody can really answer your question. Even Medicare varies from State to state.

Some insurance companies have a clause that specify one WLS surgery per lifetime.

The only way to know if your insurance covers revision is to contact them.
