INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY
Most health insurance plans cover the cost of weight loss surgery. However, it is your responsibility to confirm that your insurance company provides coverage for treatment of morbid obesity. Our team can assist you to verify your insurance benefits.
Most health insurance plans have specific requirements you will need to complete before the surgery will be approved.
General requirements for weight loss surgery:
Participation in a 3 or 6 month long Multidisciplinary Weight Loss Program
Psychological Evaluation and Clearance
Pulmonary Clearance / Sleep Study
Lab results of TSH level & negative H-pylori
2-5 years of medical notes documenting BMI
