Insurance doesn’t cover VSG

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone was able to get their insurance to cover their surgery even if it wasn’t covered by their plan. I have Aetna and they told me my plan doesn’t cover it but I can try to convince them that it was medically necessary with my doctor. My doctor said they almost always deny. Any tips?

Not sure if you’ve already done this, but can you send Aetna your medical history and other documents that point to health issues that will get worse without surgery? It’s frustrating hearing that there are still insurance carriers that don’t see this procedure as necessary.
