Bariatric Surgery is covered by most insurers including Medi-Care and Medi-Cal. Please contact us with any specific insurance questions.
What billing or insurance information will I receive?
Prior to scheduling your appointment for a consultation with Dr. Perryman or Dr. Lee, our program coordinator will verify your Bariatric Coverage with your insurance company. We will do our best to give you the most up-to-date information on coverage prior to scheduling any procedures.
How long will it take to get things settled with the insurance company?
Our program coordinator will work to clarify any insurance issues prior to proceeding with your preoperative workup.
Is there a separate hospital cost?
There will be several different costs for your surgery. Prior to proceeding with the preoperative workup, all patients will meet (over the phone or in person) with the hospital financial coordinator to clarify the expected costs and to confirm coverage. This will reduce the likelihood of any financial surprises post-op and will allow our patients to focus on the most important thing: themselves!
