Bariatric surgery

My best friend has been advised to undergo a bariatric surgery? Is this covered by the health insurance policy?

If it is for health reasons, and not for cosmetic surgery, it can be claimed under the policy.

Re: Bariatric surgery

Normally bariatric treatment is not covered. But in recent disputes between Insurance companies and who had not received the claim for Bariatric surgery, IRDAI directed insurance companies to settle the claim If its threatening to the life of insured person.
