I’ve never understood why so many insurance companies are willing to provide coverage for weight-loss surgery, but not for the skin removal after the surgery. Both are genuine medical needs, so why aren’t both approved?
I don’t get it, either. But then again, I don’t get why insurance companies do most of the things they do. Maybe they don’t see skin removal as a necessity? Excess weight leads to a lot of health issues, so maybe that’s why they’re willing to cover the weight-loss surgery and not the skin removal.
