Most patients can have weight loss surgery as a covered benefit under their health insurance. In rare cases, insurance may not pay for qualified candidates. If the patient still wants to have surgery, he or she can proceed on a cash pay basis. This means that the patient is responsible for all fees associated with the surgery. This is a significant financial commitment, and we make every effort to provide efficient and professional care.
As a result of our approval by BLIS, we are able to participate in an innovative new insurance coverage which allows us to make a commitment to our self-pay patients that should a covered complication occur within certain time frames following surgery, our patients are not responsible for the costs associated with the care of that complication. The complication protection is exclusively part of the package price you will pay for your weight loss surgery. We are happy to provide this benefit to our patients and ease your mind and your wallet in this important decision to have a life-saving surgery.
