 LOL No. Medicaid doesn't cover anything for adults in my state except for pregnancy, birthcontrol (in some cases), and cervical/breast cancer.

Is it not deemed medically necessary?

So your eyelids are so droopy that it is affecting your sight?

 Oklahoma, really only children are covered. You can get on something called Insure Oklahoma but you pay a premium and still have copays I believe.

Have you looked into groups that will help with that type of thing? Call the health department or DCF office and ask if there is anything/anyone that can help. Sorry, I hope you are able to get your surgery.
