In brief: Yes
If you meet requirements and the state you are in offers it as a covered benefit.

In brief: Depends
This is regulated by the state you live in and their specific regulations.
It is a benefit in many states, but unfortunately most bariatric surgeons don't accept patients with medicaid because it doesn't cover their costs.
