My insurance policy specifically excludes all obesity treatment (even appetite suppressant meds) including surgery - so since I have the means to pay for the surgery myself that is what I am planning to do.
But one thing that occurred to me ... if you have an elective procedure that is not covered by your health insurance policy and there are complications, is treatment of the complications covered?
I know that this is a question that I will have to ask of my insurance carrier on Monday (or maybe next week since I'll be at Disney World on Monday). But I was wondering if by chance anyone had any thoughts on this?
Of course I hope and pray that I won't have any serious post-op complications but you never know.
