I am a teacher in Georgia looking to have the Gastric Sleeve surgery, Has anyone had any dealings with BCBSGA trying to get their surgery covered? Thanks in advance for your help and support.

Unfortunately, you can't rely on other experiences, even with the same insurance company, because insurance companies offer tons of different plans. You need to call the customer service department for your insurance plan and start there to determine what steps are involved for your plan, or if your plan covers it at all.

Call your insurance company and ask, "Is bariatric surgery covered under my plan?" They'll be able to tell you yes or no, what the deductible is, what percentage they'd cover, and if there are specific requirements to be approved. You can also ask them of surgeons near you that are considered in-network, or you can look it up on their website if they offer that feature.
