Will my insurance cover the operation?

If your surgery is for medical reasons, such as weight loss surgery to combat obesity, your insurance might cover the operation in full or part. Cosmetic procedures are generally not covered unless there is also an accompanying medical reason. An example is a panniculectomy, which is the removal of excess skin and fat following an extreme fat loss.

Check with your insurer to see if bariatric surgery is covered and discuss other costs with Dr. Moein during your initial consultation.
