Weight Loss Surgery
November 4, 2011 by staff
Weight Loss Surgery, The newest course in medicine and the practice of bariatric surgery to lose weight to help obese people in achieving a normal weight has been popular but controversial for several reasons.
Critics tend to scold thin people who have had difficulty seeing the success of other measures by the lack of “will” in need of medical assistance to make the weight. Critics condemn the overweight in a society that pressures for those struggling with weight issues a risky surgery has become almost the norm among the many who are struggling with dieting.
In fact, it is unlikely that the impasse between those who require weight loss surgery and those who have never addressed the issue of stubborn weight gain will be resolved in the short term. But one of the sides in the debate is reconsidering its position in a way that could affect many patients: those states. While weight loss surgery in the past has been considered a covered service for officially diagnosed with obesity, some states are rethinking their position on the coverage of expensive procedures and aftercare sessions and extensive expensive.
Georgia is the last state to deny patients covered by public health plans access to surgery prohibitively expensive, joining Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania. (And considering the cost of pocket, it is likely that those who qualify for public health plans do not usually undergo weight loss surgery in the state of Georgia.
The impact remains to be seen, since the provision does not take effect until January 1. However, one state, Missouri, has already invested the same decision that after a while, it became clear the cost of not cover weight loss surgery outweigh the benefits from doing so.
