Under Medicaid, laproscopic adjustable gastric bading is one of the Nationally Covered Indications for patients who it is determinned medically-necessary.


A list of approved facilities and their approval dates are listed and maintained on the CMS Coverage Web site at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/center/coverage.asp, and published in the Federal Register. 

 

Good luck!!!
