Question by yanksgirl: Does insurance cover the removal of excess skin following gastric bypass surgery?
Since gastric bypass surgery is for severe/morbid obesity, does insurance cover the removal of the large amount of skin left after weight loss—which can cause many health issues, following the surgery?
Answer by Robert C
I can tell you from my experience, no. I think it would really depend on your insurance and your actual condition. If your doctor finds that it is medically necessary for you to have the surgery, it could be covered.
I know in my situation being 10 months out from surgery…extra skin is a problem already
