Our office has dedicated staff to help you with your insurance process.
Generally, health insurance companies cover the procedure, or they don't. If you want to know this, call and ask them: "Do I have bariatric surgery coverage?". If you have coverage, your insurance company may have requirements that you have to satisfy before they authorize the surgery, like a nutritional or psychological evaluation, documented diet attempts, and a certain period of time being overweight.
Each plan may have unique requirements we can help you fulfill. If you have decided to pursue coverage, then your next step after attending a seminar is to fill out the online registration forms so we can start the process to gain coverage approval for your procedure.
