:eek: I was wondering if anybody has/had medicaid in Michigan for the lap-band. What kind of problems (games) and headaches they put you through? I actually have what they call a spend down account which is like a co-pay every month that I use the insurance, but ANY info I can get on the medicaid will help.
Oh and I already know that I have to have a 12 month supervised diet :faint:

Thanks in advance,

Joh
