Paying For Surgery
We gladly accept standard fees from most major carriers. The process may involve several steps that are required by your insurance company.
- Consultation with the Weight loss surgeon
- 3-6 month physician-supervised weight loss effort
- Cardiac clearance
- Pre-approval letter from the insurance company
We are happy to work with you individually to find a way to accomplish weight loss surgery within your budget. For some, insurance coverage is not an option. We offer special self-pay pricing to aid patients in affording surgery. Some patients have the opportunity to use pre-tax deductions for healthcare expenses, reducing the taxable income. This can also include finance options.
Please contact our office and we will work with you to accomplish all of the details: firstname.lastname@example.org.
