  • Insurance Used

    Hello everyone,
    I am brand new here and I am just beginning my journey of looking into WLS. I am most curious, at this time, about what insurances are accepted for the DS (preferably around the Bakersfield, CA area). I don't currently have insurance and I am wondering about getting insurance for the purpose of getting the surgery and the length of time I have to keep it and such. If anyone can shed some light for me I would REALLY appreciate it! Thanks.

    You'd have to look at each policy to see if it excludes WLS. I know that others talked about working at Starbucks for 3 to 6mo to qualify for their insurance with the DS.

    I have Kaiser and had to fight for my DS.

      You must have health insurance long term after surgery too. How else would you be able to take care of your health? You have a lot of research to do.
