Today most insurance companies that cover weight loss surgery will cover gastric bands, laparoscopic gastric bypass, and gastric sleeve surgery. Only a few years ago the lap band procedure was considered experimental and not covered by most insurance companies.

“Even if your policy excludes weight loss surgery, if your insurance carrier deems it a medical necessity you may be able to successfully fight for surgery coverage.
