The Financial Matters of Bariatric Surgery
Considering cost is part of any big decision; it’s understandable that gastric bypass surgery candidates are going to have questions about the financial aspect of their treatment. The surgeons and staff members at Smart DIMENSIONS™ are happy to discuss potential surgical costs with you; below we’ve provided some information to get you started. For an estimate of your gastric bypass surgery cost, contact our Orange County practice, serving Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, and surrounding areas, today.
Determining the Price of Your Operation
The cost of gastric bypass surgery usually includes surgeon’s fees, hospital stays, anesthesia fees, and laboratory costs. Gastric bypass costs may or may not include your follow-up care, which could consist of office visits, psychological counseling sessions, nutritional supplements and vitamins, and other associated fees.
Most experienced bariatric surgeons will not quote an exact price without speaking with you about your particular case and needs. After meeting with one of the Smart DIMENSIONS™ bariatric surgeons and determining that you are a suitable candidate for gastric bypass surgery, we would be happy to provide an estimate for your gastric bypass surgery cost. Contact our Orange County practice today to schedule an appointment.
Keep in mind that quality gastric bypass surgery is not cheap; in fact, if a doctor gives you a quote for surgery that seems unreasonably low, you should probably question his or her experience and qualifications, as well as the caliber of the facility where the operation is performed.
Will Insurance Pay for My Gastric Bypass Surgery?
Filing for insurance benefits to cover your gastric bypass surgery cost is a viable option; insurance companies are beginning to realize the benefits associated with weight loss surgery. While we cannot guarantee that your particular carrier will cover your surgical costs in full, we have noticed that insurance providers are becoming increasingly accommodating of claims. Some of the guidelines that you will probably have to adhere to are the following:
- Obesity surgery must be a covered benefit on your plan
- The surgery must be performed to correct an obesity-related health issue
- Your physician must deem the procedure “medically necessary”
- You must have tried other means of losing weight (i.e., through diet and exercise)
