Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y)

Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y)

Does anyone know where I can go or what I can do to get coverage for me to have the Roux-en-Y surgery? My husband's work will not get insurance coverage for any weight loss surgery.

My husband's place of work will not have that as a covered operation. After talking to the insurance company they said they will only cover it only AFTER a cardiac event, heart diease, or anything. Even now that I am considered prediabetic they still wont cover it because I have not had a serious diabetic issues

See, I just don't understand that. This is a life extender. Insurance should pay the whole thing. It's preventive measurement from future illnesses.
