The Central Maine Healthcare Bariatric Surgery team will work closely with you and your insurance provider to understand coverage and steps needed to ensure your approval.
Many insurance companies provide reimbursement for weight loss surgery, though typically require patients to meet additional qualifications beyond a high BMI, such as:
- History of failed attempts to lose weight
- Psychological evaluation
- Dietary consultations
Even if your provider does not cover the surgery, it may cover some of the medical tests needed before surgery.
