Financing Your Surgery

Costs for weight loss surgery may vary greatly, based on your individual needs and the type of surgery you pursue. Many insurance programs will cover the cost of surgery. However, insurance coverage for weight loss surgery varies by insurance carrier and employer group. After you attend our information seminar, you will contact your insurance company to verify that you have “morbid obesity” benefits. To qualify for surgery, many insurers require supervised diets and special clearance letters from your physicians. Our surgeons’ office have insurance staff who will work with you to navigate insurance requirements and to obtain insurance clearance for your surgery.

You may pay for the surgery yourself if insurance coverage is not provided. Pricing information is available through the physician offices.
