Anyone had kaiser pay for their arms and tummy tuck?



Recommended Posts

I have kaiser permanente they did my sleeve almost 2 years ago, I heard that some patients have gotten their Tummy Tuck and arms approved by them or they refer them out but pay for it. I have kaiser and live in southern California and are that in Northern California they refer out. Just wondering how hard it is to get it approved and if it’s worth doing it through them. Thank you!

Kaiser is really hard to get approval from. I had RNY in 2016 and I tried to get them to do a Tummy Tuck about 6 months ago but they denied it. They told me I didn’t have enough hanging skin and I didn’t start out at a high enough weight. My highest weight was 265 and I’m at 175. I ended up going to a plastic surgeon and I’m having the surgery Wednesday. If you started at a higher weight you have a good chance they will do it
