The first step is for you to call your insurance company to find out if your insurance policy covers weight loss or bariatric surgery. If you are considered a candidate for weight loss surgery, we will work with you to obtain weight loss surgery approval.
If your insurance company denies approval, we will work with you to appeal the decision. There are many factors in determining your medical necessity for weight loss surgery. Your doctor(s) may say that your obesity is a health risk. However, weight loss surgery is considered elective surgery. You must meet all your insurance company requirements and our weight loss surgery program requirements before your surgery can be approved.
