Hi all,

I'm just trying to find folks who have had their WLS approved (or denied) by Anthem Healthkeepers ***. I am about 99% sure that they will cover it as long as my PCP thinks it's necessary, but I'm a little overwhelmed by all the steps involved.

Any info is appreciated! Thanks!

Well, I just found out my plan does not have the "morbid obesity" section so I have absolutely no coverage for WLS.

I am in the same process that you are going through with healthkeepers, even though mine is a medically necessary my company did not pay for the "ryder" so I am clueless about what steps i should take next. One thing i do know- I'm def not giving up!! It is very discouraging that you pay into the health care system, yet when you need it you cant seem to use it. I will def keep you posted and if you have any updates please let me know as well! Good Luck!!:sneaky:
