Does Medicaid Cover Gastric Bypass Surgery In Michigan?

Answer

Hi Bree,

The American Society for Bariatric Surgery (ASBS) has a searchable database on their web site to help patients find quality doctors and hospitals. You can search for surgeons in Michigan and phone them to see if they accept Medicaid.

These surgeons and hospitals listed in the ASBS dbase must meet certain criteria and stringent guidelines setup by the ASBS in order to be labelled "a Center of Excellence."

Good luck!
