Will my insurance cover weight loss surgery?

You’ll need to work closely with your surgeon’s office to find out if your medical insurance covers all or part of your weight loss surgery. You will be responsible for costs not covered by your insurance. Your bariatric surgeon’s office will provide more details after insurance benefits are verified and what is required to get bariatric surgery approved.

If they do cover the surgery, your surgeon’s office will get a predetermination from your insurance company and let you know how much insurance will pay in your specific case and how much you will be responsible for.

If your insurance excludes the procedure, then the surgeon’s office can give you more information if an appeal is an option. If you are unable to appeal due to an exclusion, you may have to consider paying for the surgery yourself. Ask about our self-pay option.
