The Cost of Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Cost can be a limiting factor for patients seeking gastric sleeve surgery, and the surgeons and staff members at Smart Dimensions™ want to help you feel comfortable with your ability to manage the cost of your procedure. We have provided some general information in this section, and you can call our office to find out more details about your specific surgery during a consultation appointment. To schedule your appointment, contact our Orange County practice, serving Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, and surrounding areas, today.
Determining the Price of Your Operation
Surgeon’s fees, anesthesia fees, laboratory costs, and hospital stays are some of the services that are included in the cost of your gastric sleeve surgery. Your estimate may or may not include other services, such as follow-up appointments, medications, nutritional supplements, and other services that are needed while you heal and lose weight.
As you look for a medical home for your bariatric surgery needs, be wary of practices that provide you with a cost before your consultation. Experienced bariatric surgeons understand that gastric sleeve surgery is an individualized treatment for weight loss, and a true cost of care cannot be determined before meeting with the patient. These treatments are not inexpensive, but you should not base your decision on cost alone.
Another aspect of the consultation appointment is determining if gastric sleeve surgery is the best option for a patient. Take the first step toward effective weight loss, and contact our Orange County practice today to schedule an appointment.
Will Insurance Pay for My Gastric Sleeve Surgery?
Due to the long-term health improvements of significant weight loss, most insurance companies cover obesity-related treatments, such as gastric sleeve surgery. Smart Dimensions™ cannot guarantee that your medical insurance will cover any or all of your gastric sleeve surgery, however. Consider the following guidelines when discussing coverage with your insurance carrier:
- Obesity surgery must be covered by your plan
- The surgery must be performed to correct an obesity-related health concern
- The procedure must be deemed “medically necessary” by your physician
- You have been unsuccessful with other weight loss options, such as diet and exercise
