So, I am considering having WLS this year and was wondering if they considered Hidradenitis Suppurative to be a Comorbidity requierment, The only cormobidity I have is Gerd and I take Pepcid over the counter for it so im not sure if that would be enough to get me approved for the surgery or not, I currently have Molina Under Medicaid.

I guess it may depends if your surgeon can make a case for it to be included, According to the website link below excess weight can cause the symptoms to worsen.

Would Molina tell you what the accepted comorbidities are and whether they consider others not on the list if the surgeon is able to make a case for it?
