You are not likely to find a doctor that accepts medicaid for liposuction, or any other elective cosmetic surgery. Publicly funded medical assistance is for actual illness and injury. If you are morbidly obese, it might cover the cost of weight loss surgery, but you would need to check with your medicaid provider to find out for sure.
Medicaid normally would not consider paying for liposuction. But, in rare situations, such as Central Sleep Apnea, obstructive sleep apnea in combination with a threatening illness- I believe that Medicaid would consider the procedure if nothing else tried - such as dieting, exercise and faithful use of a CPAP machine. At this point, it would be matter of life or death. Few, persons outside of the medical field realize that persons with severe sleep disorders such as Central Sleep Apnea cannot lose weight. Without a normal sleep processes key hormones and chemistry are not released from the brain. Therefore, it is very difficult if not impossible for one to lose weight. The excess weight impacts ones ability to breath at night or during naps. It would not be a. surgery for appearance, for some patients it is a matter of life or death. I pay taxes also, which fund Medicaid. In situations as posted above, I would gladly see my fellow American have the procedure, then live to see another day.
