2. INSURANCE MODEL - BMI of 35 or more
Insurance dictates that:
A. If BMI 35-39.9 then will pay for laparoscopic Weight Loss Surgery (ie. Gastric Sleeve) "if" it is a coverage insurance benefit and typically require at least one medical or health problem (ie. sleep apnea, fatty liver, diabetes, hypertension, cardiac enlargement, high cholesterol, and other) exists;
B. If BMI 40 OR GREATER then there is no health problem or medical illness required for benefit coverage.
Costs vary per specific policy and are inclusive of the day of surgery and 90 days of expert Weight Loss Surgery care.
Your Insurance either COVERS weight loss surgery as a BENEFIT, or EXCLUDES it as a benefit. If "EXCLUDED", see cash pay options above, we offer excellent low interest financing!
