Weight Loss Financing, Insurance, and Forms

To qualify for insurance coverage, many insurance companies require certain documentation for approval. Our skilled bariatric surgeon and expert team will gather any required documentation and request any necessary records from your other doctors. Some insurance companies require that you undergo three to six months of “medically supervised weight loss”. This means that you must have seen your primary doctor and discussed the issue of weight loss for at least this amount of time. Often past visits can be used to satisfy this requirement. Sometimes insurance approval can take a while, but we encourage you to stick with it and not give up. Our team is skilled at negotiating the complex requirements of insurance coverage. Once you are able to move forward with surgery, you will see that the wait was well worth it.

For those who do not qualify for insurance coverage, financing options are also available. Please contact our office for more information.
