Has anyone had lap band surgery in N.C? preferably in or around the Asheville area. Does anyone know if N.C. medicaid will pay for it?

I'm not from your area but just from experience, even if insurance does cover the procedure, they will turn you down the first time with some excuse like "it's not medically necessary", or "you haven't tried enough alternative methods."  You just have to keep proving them wrong.  Get all you medical files and show that it is medically necessary.  Typically, your primary care physician will write a letter for you on your behalf.  Again, I don't know if this has helped you at all, but if your insurance does cover it, don't get discouraged when they deny it the first time. Fight back!
