I am 39 years old and having weigh loss surgery on Sept 4th 2020, I have United health care community ( Medicaid) and no it was not harder to get approved as long as you do everything that is requested and take your time, Do everything in order 1. attend a webinar for WLS, then get an letter from primary care doctor ( letter of medical necessity) a lot of doctors office have a template on what the letter should say. I had the letter already typed and ready to go at my appointment and all my doctor had to do was sign it.  After that met with my WL surgeon and she gave me a checklist and I slowly began to make all my appointment and knock them all out ( I did it during COVID 19 and most appointment were Virtual, very easy.
