Yes Colorado Medicaid will cover the lap band surgery. I called Medicaid a few days ago to ask the same question I was told they will cover the whole thing as long as your doctor states it's medically necessary and the first step is to have your doctor send them the forms and then you have to wait and see if they will approve it or not .Good luck hope this answers you question.

Medicaid does not cover obesity, and under Medicare, hospital and physician services for obesity are clearly excluded. Medicaid is a government program that provides health insurance to qualified individuals whose income level is below a certain point. Recipients of Medicaid are primarily women and children who are poor and members of minority groups. Given the high prevalence of obesity among those populations, it could be presumed that many Medicaid recipients are likely to have obesity. Medicare provides health insurance coverage to elderly citizens and disabled Americans who qualify by meeting criteria of the Social Security Administration (SSA) and completing a two-year waiting period. i do not know if medicaid covers the lap band surgery however it does cover gastric bypass surgery ive had gastric bypass surgery over 4years ago and medicaid did cover alought i did have breathing problems due to weight call you local office and ask for the info directly for ny 18005055678 that answer before made no sense!!!!!love yourself do research and ask othersMedicare Part A does cover Obesity Bariatric Surgery but for specifics you need to contact your states medicare office because coverage can vary from state to state.
