Answer by james m
The best way to get insurance to cover weight loss surgery is to go to work for a company that offers group insurance.
If you are obese, you might have a hard time buying health insurance, and even if you do, you would have to have the policy for a year or two before it would pay for that.
There is a question on an application for individual health insurance policy, that asks a question something like this:
“Have you had any type of surgery recommended by your physician that has not yet been completed?”
If you answer “Yes”, they are not going to insure you.

Welch was joined at the press conference by Donna Watts, whose 21-year-old son, Kerry, was injured in a serious accident this summer after he was forced off his familys health plan and took a job that did not provide insurance. Kerry now faces thousands of dollars in medical bills. One of the most anxiety-inducing …
