Default Medicaid?

I have Medicaid known as UPHP in Michigan. I don't know how long they take or what their time limit is on approvals. Anyone have an idea?

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.

Considering its a state run thing.....Medicad it will vary in different states. You can always call and ask that question. That is what I would do if it was me. The state of Virginia does pay for it but I have no idea how long it takes to get approved.... so be good to you and........ call!

I have many years of experience working in the Health Insurance Industry - particularly with Medicaid. As a previous member mentioned, coverage does vary from state to state....

I've worked for a national company, who provides medicaid insurance in 25 states - and they covered it on a case by case basis.

This has typically been my experience with it... Medicaid is typically supportive based upon medical necessity. After all..... Chances are, you'll save them money down the road by their covering your surgery....

My medicaid is called Upper Peninsula Health Plan (UPHP). They truly are amazing. I didn't have to wait but like 48 hours, if that. Of course I didn't know I was approved until a week later because my doctors office was calling the wrong number to get ahold of me.
