buffalo hump
Jun 13, 2003

Is there any possibility that the medicaid will pay for a liposuction on the back of my neck? I am a female, 38 years old, 16 years living with HIV. my buffalo hump is so big that i am totally embarrased and frustrated. I don't know how to dress anymore. Please help me.

Response from Ms. Fields-Gardner

Medicaid is a state-run program and the rules and regs vary between states. You may want to talk with your case manager to find out what types of things can be covered by Medicaid in your state.

Best wishes!
