Finances & Insurance
Insurance coverage is an important aspect for patients to understand. The easiest way to know if your insurance will pay for bariatric-related care is to call them and ask. The fact that your physician feels that surgery is medically necessary does not guarantee that your insurance company will agree. It is very helpful to find out the specific criteria your insurance requires to qualify for surgery and start working on getting this information together.
Please remember, every insurance company is different and may require different forms of information.
If you do not have insurance, or your insurance will not cover bariatric surgery, you have the option to pay for the bariatric surgery services. Please call our Bariatric Scheduling coordinator at 503 494-1983 for pricing information.
