Insurance and Financing

The decision to undergo weight loss surgery is an important medical decision.  Deaconess Weight Loss Solutions understands that the decision can be financial as well.

Deaconess Weight Loss Solutions does not charge an administrative fee like most comprehensive surgical programs. We feel that it is more important that you are able to make all of your insurance co-payments so that your surgery will not be delayed.

Fees associated with weight loss surgery can include:

  • Physician fees
  • Surgeon fees
  • Hospital fees
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Lab and X-ray fees
  • Counseling fees
  • Miscellaneous fees

Insurance coverage involves approval and authorization to cover the cost of weight loss surgery. Please be aware that you will be responsible to make all of your insurance co-payments. Patient expenses can vary and the patient is ultimately responsible for those expenses. It is important that you contact your insurance company to confirm your benefits for weight loss surgery.

Our insurance specialist offers assistance with billing process. If you should have any questions about the cost of weight loss surgery, please contact our office at 812/450-7419.
