Many insurance companies completely cover the cost of bariatric surgery but require a great deal of paperwork to be completed first. Other insurance plans do not cover this surgery. Norton Weight Management Services surgery staff will help you complete the steps to obtain insurance approval, if possible, but you are expected to take an active, lead role in the process. For assistance or questions regarding insurance plans, contact our experienced staff.
Some patients must pay for this surgery out-of-pocket because the surgery is not covered by their insurance policy or they have been denied by their insurance company. Contact Erin Mulford Brown, director of bariatric services, for more information on out-of-pocket costs.
