Each insurance plan requires that patients complete specific criteria prior to requesting surgical authorization. These requirements will be reviewed with you in detail at your consultation along with any financial responsibility you may have prior to undergoing surgery.
Most insurance companies will require a combination of the following:
- Medically supervised weight management – 3 to 6 consecutive months
- Nutritional evaluation
- Psychological evaluation
- Medical testing – EKG, chest x-ray, lab work etc.
- Medical clearance from specialist or PCP
We strongly recommend that patients contact their insurance representative and verify bariatric coverage, education requirements and any financial responsibility owed before surgery.
