Will VA pay for lap band surgery or gastric bypass surgery?

VA does not provide approval for Lap band surgery. VA may approve gastric bypass surgery to those veterans who meet the required criteria; however, not all VA medical facilities will provide this type of surgery. Veterans who need a gastric bypass surgery are required to check with their regional VA medical facility to see if they meet the criteria and, if approved, where and when it could be performed.
