Medicare coverage of gastric bypass surgery
Medicare should cover the full cost of gastric bypass surgery if you are operated on at a Center of Excellence Hospital and the surgeon participates with medicare. I suggest you find a surgeon that meets these criteria and then you will not have to pay that much money. Good luck.
