Weight Loss Surgery Insurance Exclusion: No worries!

More and more companies are choosing not to include bariatric surgery coverage in their medical insurance policies offered to employees.  If your insurance does not cover bariatric surgery, do not get discouraged. While My Bariatric Solutions does not offer in house payment plans, we do work with several medical financing companies.
