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.

Tricia, I have no input into how the site is run or what becomes a sticky, but I'm sure that DocSanae will look at it and decide if it should be. If I had a vote, I'd vote "yes"!

Betsy, this is good stuff! Thanks for doing the research and being so willing to share with the family!

Thank you for this post. It could be a life saver for some. I'm 2 1/2 yrs out and wish I had this many times. It is also helping me understand what meds to be more careful with.
