I've been reading conflicting posts some saying that Medicare WILL approve the Sleeve & others saying that Medicare WONT cover the Sleeve but will cover the banding or bypass. I live in Texas (dont know if the state makes a difference or not) & will be having the procedure in Texas. Can someone please shed some light on this??
My worst fear is paying for all the "pre-op" consults, pyschologist, nutritionist, 3 mths of weight management only to find out Medicare won't approve me.
Any insight and/or advice is appreciated!!
