Insurance Options

The cost of weight loss surgery can be covered through medical insurance and/or self-pay methods. Many insurance companies now offer some bariatric benefit coverage. Call your insurance provider and specifically ask about your bariatric benefit to further determine your payment options. Confirmation of coverage may take 4-6 weeks.

Please be aware that all co-pays must be paid in full two weeks prior to your scheduled surgery date. If you will be a self-pay patient, the full amount must be paid by two weeks prior to your surgery date.This includes both the surgeon and the hospital fees.
