Insurance & Financing
At My Bariatric Solutions®, we understand that weight loss surgery can be costly. We know how important weight loss procedures are for our patients. We are committed to helping individuals in need obtain the care they deserve. Many insurance companies cover bariatric procedures such as Gastric Balloon, Lap-Band, Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass and revisional surgeries under their plans, as morbid obesity poses a genuine health risk to individuals; however, bariatric surgery covered by insurance varies for each patient. It is important that you verify with your insurance provider that bariatric surgery is covered under your policy. Our office can assist you in this process. In the case that surgery is not covered, we offer bariatric surgery financing options below. We also offer competitive cash price packages that include all aspects of the surgery process.

Preparing for and Acquiring Approval
Insurance companies often require extensive documentation regarding your weight history and your attempts at weight loss. Before you contact your insurance provider, you should collect as many documents as you can, including:
- Medical documentation of a five-year weight history
- Documentation detailing the use of diet drugs or medically prescribed diets
- Records indicating participation in a commercial diet (Jenny Craig® and Weight Watchers®, for example)
- Records indicating participation in an exercise program (gym memberships or intramural sports leagues)
- Records indicating monthly visits with your Primary Care Physician in regards to weight loss attempts
It is important that you gather this official documentation and it is in your best interest for it to be as complete as possible. Insurance companies will require official documentation before they are willing to subsidize or cover the costs of bariatric surgery. If you are missing documentation, you may be able to obtain copies from your physician or the commercial weight loss programs you have participated in.
Upon receiving the required documentation, our insurance specialist at My Bariatric Solutions will review the material to ensure that it meets the guidelines outlined by the insurance company and send a letter of recommendation to your provider, recommending bariatric surgery for your continued health. At My Bariatric Solutions, we will work diligently for approval from your insurance provider. If your insurance provider denies the request, we can assist you in an attempt to appeal the decision. We are committed to helping our patients live a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.
