Weight Loss Surgery Success – What If My Insurance Doesn’t Cover Weight Loss Surgery?


Hello This a doctor Tom Clark center for Center for Weight Loss Success. I’m a weight loss surgeon as well as bariatrician. For the past two decades I’ve
helped thousands of people lose weight and keep it off. One of the more common questions
that we get when concerning weight loss surgery is
” What if my insurance doesn’t cover weight loss surgery?” Now often people think they’re dreams are dashed
when they find out it’s not. But you’re not alone. This is actually very common problem. If you think about it, less than one
percent of the individuals who meet the criteria for weight loss surgery actually have the
surgery. And one of the most common reasons is lack of insurance coverage. So it
actually is a very common thing. Now if you don’t have insurance coverage there often generally self-pay options
available. And some of them can be fairly reasonable.
The affordability too often depends on specific procedure, the geographical location like where do
you live, as well as what are the other supportive
program aspects that may be included in the cost. self pay costs of weight loss
surgery in the United States range
somewhere usually from about 14,000 to 30,000 dollars
depending on the procedure and what is included. This generally
includes the cost of anesthesia hospital facility fee, as well as the
surgeon’s fee. Just as an example, at the Center for
Weight Loss success we’ve worked really hard to keep our
prices as reasonable as possible. Our present prices are for a sleeve
gastrectomy or gastric sleeve about 13,995 dollars. With the ajustable gastric band 16,995 dollars. Gastric bypass 18,995 dollars. Now this also includes not only the
anesthesia, hospital fee, surgeon’s fee, but also
includes our exclusive Weight Management University for weight
loss surgery. It’s a comprehensive educational program for the entire year
after the surgery to really optimize your success, optimize
your weight loss, as well as teaching you how to do this for
life. It’s a very important part of what we do
at the Center for Weight loss Success. Now financing options generally are
available. If you give us a call at the Center for Weight Loss success we’d be happy to talk to you about it. But you really need to ask yourself this
very important question, “Just how much is adding five to seven
years of quality life worth to you?” In my mind it’s worth it. So think about that and if you’re
interested in pursuing it we’d be happy to talk to you about it.
