QUITE frustrated. Here I am, about 90 lbs overweight. I am exercising, changing my eating habits, not seeing much in the way of results. So, a month or two back I checked out surgical weight loss options--gastric bypass. I am a candidate, with my BMI, sleep apnea, depression. Unfortunately, my insurance doesn't cover "morbid obesity treatment" How?? How can something simply described as leading to DEATH, not be covered in insurance???? Oh, our privately paying company that DH works for elected out of it. Thanks, guys! And surgery costs about as much as buying a new car, so that's out.
So, again, needing some help, support, I talk to my family doctor. She recommends the nutritionists and weight loss program that the medical center runs. They take insurance. GREAT! Except MY insurance doesn't cover that either because I don't have diabetes. F%#@!! So, 90lbs overweight, morbidly obese, does not qualify for medical help? I don't get it. I am so frustrated!!!!
