Health insurance plans vary in the coverage they offer for medical weight loss and surgical weight loss. Our insurance specialist will contact your insurance carrier and work with you to determine whether your insurance covers your medical or surgical weight loss needs.
Once you have returned the new patient packet, our insurance specialist will contact you with details of your coverage, including:
- If your policy covers obesity, morbid obesity or weight loss surgery.
- How much you may be expected to pay out-of-pocket.
- Any additional requirements for coverage you may have to meet.
Once we compile the necessary information, we will submit a letter of request to your insurance carrier, requesting approval for coverage. We will contact you when we receive your insurance company’s decision.
