Bariatric surgery is covered by insurance (including Medicaid and Medicare) for those who qualify.
A health insurance company may initially deny coverage or need additional information from the doctor before they can approve coverage. This can be confusing, but is usually something we can help resolve for you.
We have insurance specialists who can work directly with your insurance company to obtain approvals and coverage for you. Call our office if you have questions about insurance coverage.
We provide close, easy to find parking and are located on the first floor. If you need any lab work, our lab services are located across the hall in the same building.
