Insurance Options

Does My Insurance Cover Bariatric Surgery?

Generally speaking, if you have bariatric benefits as part of your policy, a weight loss surgery procedure will be covered by insurance if you meet the requirements listed. We encourage you to check your own benefits by calling your insurance provider and asking if you have bariatric surgery coverage. You can also check with your employer for specific information about your policy.

Our team will help you verify your insurance benefits prior to meeting with one of our providers. Costs of the procedure or surgery will vary depending on the site where the surgery occurs, the type of procedure, and how long you are required to stay in the hospital. Our Jump-Start Low BMI Program also is a self-pay option. Prior to scheduling your initial appointment, our staff will go over procedure coverage with you and estimated out of pocket expenses.

Patients Without Insurance or Bariatric Benefits

For patients with a bariatric exclusion in their policy, those who do not have insurance, and those who are seeking surgery outside the constraints of their insurance company, we offer many self-funded options for bariatric surgery. We have self-pay programs for many different types of weight loss surgery as well as secondary, or revision procedures. For those wanting to research bariatric insurance coverage options for their business, please contact BARInet.
