  • Did they give you a reason why they deniyed you? Some insurances require you do diet and excercise for a year before they will pay for bariatric surgery. I say appeal it right away and dont let up on them as they are hoping you will just go away and forget it. You pay your premiums. Your Dr also has to medically reccoment that it is necessary before insurance will pay.
