Because morbid obesity is considered a medical condition, insurance will cover most surgeries if a legitimate medical reason to perform the surgery is given with reasonable expectations that the patient’s health will improve with weight loss. Because each insurance provider supplies a range of policies, it is necessary for each person to obtain the insurance information pertinent to his or her own policy. With a small amount of information from you, St.Vincent can contact your insurance company to obtain the specifics on your policy.
