Success after IF
Options

I'm sitting in a lap-band/gastric sleeve dr's office...

because I had to take my Mom to her appointment. (Basically, I had to take her because she can't find her way around the Houston medical center.)  I have to say, it ticks me off that insurance pays for lap-band surgery and gastric sleeve surgery, but IF coverage is pretty much non-existent.  That is all.

    YES!  Insurance is definitely ridiculous in the things it chooses to cover and not to cover.  Grr!

    I agree. My mom did lap band two years ago and when she asked how insurance covered our IF stuff, I just laughed and said it doesn't.

    You know what else makes me mad? My SIL's sister lives off the government, always has and always will. Guess

    I understand frustration that IVF and other IF treatment is not covered by insurance. The reason they cover gastric bypass is because it is less expensive than paying for the myriad of medical conditions resulting from obesity and morbid obesity.  It

    I have a very negative opinion concerning lap-band.  My Mother was actually there because she has had so many problems.  In my view, it basically just has been enforced bulimia on her.  She has never truly changed her diet or exercise.&n

    I'm lucky enough that our insurance covers a lot of or fetility tx but found it very interesting that it covers abortion/vasectomy at 100%. Financially it makes since, less dependents but so unfair.
