Is it possible for a patient to get disability benefits after arm lift surgery due to post bariatric surgery?

Q:

I've had arm lift surgery after post bariatric surgery.  Is it possible to file a disability claim during my recovery period?

A:

It could be possible. Contact your short term disability insurance carrier to determine if you are eligible for this benefit. Federal programs like Medicare would not cover such a process/event.

Best,
