Insurance GERD Revision



Recommended Posts

Just curious if insurance will cover you if they want to do a revision from a sleeve to a bypass. 18 months out no weight gain buy having unbelievable GERD affecting my health.

I think some policies will cover revisions if there are medical reasons - and GERD would be a medical reason. You'll have to check with your insurance company, though, to see if it'll be covered.

I had my surgery in December of 2020. Been experiencing reflux so bad. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield. I read on their website that your BMI can’t be below 35 and you have to have issues. I’m at a 31 BMI. I’m really hoping they approve the surgery because this reflux sucks.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
