In certain circumstances where the person is grossly overweight and the excess weight having an adverse effect on their daily activities.


Answer by  mtzuk (9)

No, Florida Medicaid does not pay for Lap band surgery, at least this what I know. This is a misconception that a lot of people have. Florida Medicaid provides assistance to low income people and that is no use for us, who pay each month income and taxes for our health.
