I have a friend who is a teacher and she has been told that her insurance does not cover WLS. Has anyone else appealed this or anything to get insurance to cover the surgery?? Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.

I have heard that it is difficult to say the least if there is an exclusion to the policy.. most people self pay in that case..

(and fyi school employees in Georgia have bariatric surgery covered now.. I have GA teachers insurance via my husband who is a district employee)

If bariatric surgery is specifically excluded in the insurance plan then there really is no way. I have Florida blue and its specifically excluded here in Florida. I ended up paying cash

My aunt is also a teacher by the way* so as far as insurance for wls - I have to say its almost impossible to get one that covers her. However, I am a law student and am used to researching every new case and source I come across. So recently I had to write my assignment analyzing legal dodges and I found that it is possible to rename this assurance and move it to another article in such a way that wsl becomes assured.

I also have a relative who is a teacher. She, too, will not be able to fully achieve this. It is very difficult for teachers in general, an underestimated profession in fact. To take an example from me, I remember in school not to write about Water pollution, I used https://samploon.com/free-essays/water-pollution/ for this. It's not really fightable, but they have to keep an eye on every student. I think this is the most difficult profession and all privileges should be paid to them.

Please write down what needs to be done.
