Weight Loss Method
Roux en Y Gastric Bypass

my husband and I have both had wls now. He is Ret USAF. We just told our doc we wanted the surg, he put in the ref to surg and they reviewed our issues and accepted us into the bariatric pathway. We both had to go to classes, psych eval, etc and then got our surg date. I never actually had to deal with Tri-care at all. It was all just covered. My hosp stay was $33 (oh my!) lol and my husband's was free.
My recovery was a couple months, his was a week so I guess that's highly individual.
Hope all goes well for you!

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.
