If I get gastric bypass (self-pay) is it considered a pre-existing condition for the rest of my life, or will it affect health insurance in any way?
Gastric Bypass - Pre-existing Condition for Insurance?

Gastric bypass and pre-existing condition
Obama's new healthcare plan prevents insurance companies from excluding pre-existing conditions. It should not affect your ability to get insurance because you will actually become healthier after weight loss surgery and decrease your chances of developing many medical problems.
