This a doctor Tom Clark center for Center for Weight Loss Success. I'm a
weight loss surgeon as well as bariatrician.
For the past two decades I've helped thousands of people lose weight
and keep it off.
One of the more common questions that we
get when concerning weight loss surgery is " What if my insurance doesn't cover
weight loss surgery?" Now often
people think they're dreams are dashed when they find out it's not.
But you're not alone. This is actually very common problem.
If you think about it, less than one percent of the individuals who meet the
criteria for weight loss
surgery actually have the surgery.
And one of the most common reasons is
lack of insurance coverage. So it actually is a very common thing.
Now if you don't have insurance coverage
there often generally self-pay options available.
And some of them can be fairly reasonable. The affordability too often depends on
the geographical location like where do you live,
as well as what are the other supportive program aspects that may be included
in the cost. self pay costs of weight loss surgery
in the United States range somewhere usually from
about 14,000 to 30,000 dollars depending on the procedure
and what is included. This generally includes the cost of anesthesia
hospital facility fee, as well as the surgeon's fee.
Just as an example, at the Center for Weight Loss success
we've worked really hard to keep our prices as reasonable as possible.
Our present prices are for a sleeve gastrectomy or gastric sleeve
about 13,995 dollars.
With the ajustable gastric band 16,995
dollars. Gastric bypass
Now this also includes not only the anesthesia,
hospital fee, surgeon's fee, but also includes our exclusive
Weight Management University for weight loss surgery. It's a comprehensive
educational program for the entire year after the surgery
to really optimize your success, optimize your weight loss,
as well as teaching you how to do this for life. It's a
very important part of what we do at the Center for Weight loss Success.
Now financing options generally are available.
If you give us a call at the Center for Weight Loss success we'd be happy to talk to you about it.
But you really
need to ask yourself this very important question,
"Just how much is adding five to seven years of
quality life worth to you?"
In my mind it's worth it. So think
about that and if you're interested in pursuing
it we'd be happy to talk to you about it. Want more information?
