Anyone with Medicare? How is/was the approval process and coverage for the surgery? I have BCBS thru my husband's employer, and the coverage and benefits are excellent, but I'm wondering if the coverage requirements for the gastric sleeve surgery might be better with Medicare coverage so I don't have to wait so long. I can get my coverage back because I'm entitled to it with my SSDI, so I would just like to check my options. I only have part A right now, but I can get the other benefits back as well.

I have Medicare and Medicaid they only require 3 month nutritionist. I started on Feb and my surgery is April 30th. Also remember all the pre appointments you have to see depending on your doctor

I had Medicare, secondary Ohio Medicaid- things went smooth as silk, a lot better than when I tried with United Healthcare, a lot of hoops and requirements with them.
