INSURANCE EXCLUSION WLS
- GOVERNOR PHIL BREDENSEN
- United States of America
In recent years insurance companies have started excluding coverage of surgery for obese people, requardless of the illnesses that will be cured by having the surgery. I think anyone considered Morbidly Obese (BMI 40>) or Obese(BMI 35>) with comorbidities, should be allowed to have the surgery.
Recent research has shown that it is the only effective cure for obesity and the surgery will cure almost 99% of related illnesses. Insurance companies should not be allowed to exclude a surgery considered Medically Necessary. This is discrimination against Obese people.
We the undersigned say, Insurance Companies should not be allowed to exclude surgery as a cure for Morbid Obese patients.
