Paying for surgery
While insurance coverage for bariatric surgery is becoming more common, some plans don't cover it. You will need to call your insurance company to verify whether you have bariatric benefits.
The price of surgery depends on many factors, including:
- The type of surgery you plan to have.
- The amount of your deductible.
- The amount of your co-insurance.
- Any extra bariatric surgery fees.
