Insurance & Financing

For weight loss surgery patients:

The first step is to verify your insurance policy covers weight loss surgery. Your insurance company will post this information on their website. Make sure to review it before starting the process. Ask for a copy of bariatric policy so that you are aware of what you should complete for insurance approval.

Sometimes, your insurance company may not cover weight loss surgery. We also offer financing for those patients who do not meet the criteria and/or have an exclusion on their plan. You can learn more about finance options through Care Credit.
