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


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


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.
