Surgery Cost and Insurance
Many insurance plans will cover bariatric surgery.
Check your plan for coverage requirements and out-of-pocket expense for pre-surgical, surgery and post surgical requirements. We recommend you review your insurance policy to see if you have:
- Weight loss surgery coverage
- Any out-of-pocket expenses
- Additional requirements you must meet for coverage
Insurance companies usually require at least six to twelve consecutive months of documented diet history. Many also require nutrition and psychiatric consultations. WINH’s pre-surgical Lifestyle Program will help you meet insurance requirements.
WINH staff will assist you every step of the way, before during and after your surgery. We will answer your questions, help you with the information you may need for insurance and discuss any possible financial obligations you may have.
