Question by : Does Nevada Medicaid cover weight loss surgery (lap-band) and if so, who are the doctors that accept it?
Looking for a surgeon in the Las Vegas area preferably, who takes medicaid. Im hearing different stories, some people say that medicaid is no longer covering WLS, some are saying only one person in Las Vegas accepts medicaid, but its hard to get to see him. Any other info on WLS in the Vegas area would be helpful also.

It has to be about your health and not your appearance.

Individual cases about Medicaid coverage of gastric bypass surgery generally involve proving that for a particular patient, the surgery is medically necessary and not cosmetic. This might involve looking at a person’s body mass index, weight, and other health problems, referencing alternative treatments that the patient has tried, and noting likely improvements in the patients’ health and functional abilities that will result from weight loss.
