NEW PATIENT PAPERWORK

Step 3: 

We ask every patient considering bariatric surgery to call their own insurance company in order to verify bariatric benefits for the treatment of morbid obesity. If covered, your insurance will specify a minimum body mass index (BMI) and other requirements. We offer a BMI calculator for your convenience. It’s very common for insurance plans to require a minimum BMI of 35 along with other specified health conditions or a BMI of 40 or greater on its own. Patients with a BMI below 35 will not qualify for surgery

INSURANCE VERIFICATION

What do you dream about? Hiking? Bike riding? Playing with your kids? Obesity not only robs you of ordinary, daily activities, but it can create a number of health problems. Diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and many more diseases can all result from being overweight. These and many other health problems often improve significantly with weight loss.

It’s time to live your dream!
