Bariatric Surgery Costs & Insurance

Understanding the costs of bariatric surgery is an important part of the decision making process. What is covered by insurance? Are there financing options? Will BASS Medical Group help me to organize my bariatric surgery costs? These are all important questions that our team of bariatric surgeons can help answer.

Bariatric Surgery and Insurance

Determining if bariatric surgery is covered by your insurance largely depends on your individual policy. In most cases, bariatric surgery procedures including gastric bypass surgery, gastric band or lap band surgery, gastric sleeves and duodenal switches are all covered by insurance. There is clear evidence that weight loss surgery has many health benefits and diminishes the risk of serious health conditions. If your insurance plan does not cover bariatric surgery, ask why? Furthermore, your insurance plan may cover part of your overall costs for bariatric surgery. So, fully understanding your insurance benefits is important. If you are thinking about bariatric surgery and would like to get more information on whether it is covered by your insurance, please feel free to talk to one of our bariatric surgery patient coordinators to learn more.
