Bariatric Surgery Insurance
Bariatric surgery is a major procedure. As such, many patients are concerned with the financial requirements for a successful surgery. At Lenox Hill Bariatric Surgery Program, we are happy to assist you with your bariatric surgery insurance needs to the best of our abilities. From determining eligibility, to helping structure payment plans to fit you, our insurance specialists are experts in bariatric surgery coverage.
Due to the medical necessity of bariatric procedures, many health insurance policies cover the cost of surgery. We accept most major insurance providers. WE DO NOT ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING INSURANCES: METROPLUS, OXFORD METRO or OSCAR. If you have health insurance and are looking for assistance in determining your eligibility, coverage limits, or benefits opportunities, we are happy to assist.
Prior to moving forward with a procedure, verification of insurance benefits will be confirmed by a LHH-Lenox Hill Insurance Specialist. The primary basis for our evaluation will depend on the information you provide on your Patient Registration Form so please be as thorough and accurate as possible.
After filling out your required patient paperwork, you will have the opportunity to sit down and discuss your financial situation with a member of our team. With our assistance, you can determine the opportunities at your disposal, including full insurance coverage, out of pocket payments, and more.
As a part of your counseling, an insurance specialist will review your notable health-related financial responsibilities before progressing. Co-payments, deductibles, and out-of-network fees, as well as dental and vision expense are all considered. At this time, you will also receive assistance in making arrangements for a payment method that’s best for you.
Bariatric surgery isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, and neither is your payment plan. We realize that the affordability of a major surgical procedure isn’t the same from one patient to the next, and we strive to work with you as best as possible to create solutions that are right for your family and we will help you carefully assess your financial situation, providing a realistic depiction of what you can afford and the treatments that are right for you. From bariatric procedure selection to medical weight loss alternatives, we will assist you in creating a comprehensive plan centered around your physical and financial abilities.
Paying for surgery can be extremely costly, especially for those without comprehensive insurance coverage. We will do our best to help your financial obligations.
