Bariatric Surgery

Obese elderly or disabled patients are now eligible for a variety of surgical weight loss procedures under Medicare.

Previously, Medicare patients could only receive gastric bypass surgery.

But the new rules open the door to laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding.

Eligible patients must have tried but failed with other weight loss options, have at least one weight-related medical problem and have a high body mass index.
