Most insurance companies including Medicare and Medicaid will cover gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and other bariatric and general surgeries. Please keep in mind that while most insurances offer some sort of weight loss surgery coverage, your individual policy will include details of what is covered and what is not. Some policies exclude weight loss surgery all together.
