I have had a pannus for over 10 years. I am on Medicare because of a disability. I understand there is a possibility that a panniculectomy might be covered for medical issues. I have lower back issues as well as sores in the skin folds. Someone told me back problems would not be a medical reason for Medicare to cover the procedure.
What medical reason does Medicare consider, that would approve the procedure?
I don’t care about getting a tummy tuck, I just want the extra hanging skin removed, I’m so uncomfortable.
