I am on Medicaid in Florida and would like to have this procedure done.My case was declined because of not having proof of weight-loss for six months. What do I do to get approval this time?

Hmm. Let's see. How about doing the six month weight-loss program and then getting those records? (Am I missing something?) Actually six months is pretty standard for all insurance companies. Medicaid of Michigan requires 12 months, so you have a good deal.
