Has your insurance carrier or your employer made any changes to your policy for 2015? Frequently insurance companies make policy changes that go into effect at the beginning of the year. This can include adding coverage for bariatric surgery. If you do not have bariatric coverage currently, be sure to check with your HR department or your insurance carrier after Jan 1st to see if they have added coverage for bariatric procedures. If you have coverage currently it is still a good idea to check with your insurance carrier to see if there are any important changes in your policy that might effect upcoming bariatric surgery.
