OUR EXPERTS GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE INSURANCE PROCESS
We participate with most major insurance providers. While obtaining insurance approval may be challenging, our expert staff will guide you through the entire process. Our program assigns each patient their own pre-surgical coordinator who will guide them through each step of the insurance approval process. The coordinator’s goal is to get your surgery pre-approved in the most efficient manner. Often, you will be required to complete certain preoperative steps, including psychological and nutrition screening and a six-month medically supervised weight-loss program. These services are available through our office.
Currently we are participating providers of Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Healthcare/Oxford Health Plans, Medicare, Cigna, Qualcare. We do not accept Medicaid. If you have any other insurance plan, we can care for you if you have out-of-network benefits. “Out-of-network” does mean that, while the majority of the costs of the operation and hospital will be covered, there may be some out-of-pocket expenses for you. Generally these costs are minimal and the office is willing to work with you to make the surgery possible and affordable.
Affordable self-pay packages, with competitive financing, are available for those patients who wish to pay for the surgery themselves.
