The PS that I will meet with at the end of the month does submit to your insurance company for your plastic surgery. The woman I spoke to on the phone said that lots of gastric bypass patients get coverage for their excess skin removal. Not only because of skin breakdown issues and rashes but also because their excess skin is a result of something that (in most cases) insurance has already paid for. I had to ask the lady, are you telling me that this would be easier if I had had gastric bypass. She replied, "I'm not saying that, but it helps."
