Question by prettyenpink: Best medical insurance for gastric bypass?
I have struggled with being overweight my whole life and I have decided I want gastric bypass. I currently do not have insurance and I want to buy insurance to cover the surgery. I’m not really sure how to go about purchasing insurance and which ones deny weight loss surgeries. I am 22 and in perfect other then being overweight, so I figure getting health insurance shouldn’t be too hard to get approved for. Like I said just wondering which insurance is best for the surgery and any suggestions you have for purchasing health insurance would be great. Thanks!

It is nearly impossible to find health insurance which will pay for a gastric bypass. Those which DO pay are very expensive policies, and the insurer willl require that you follow a medically observed diet for at least one year before they will approve such expensive surgery.
