Answers to Your Insurance Questions

Insurance coverage for weight loss procedures is a complex subject. The search for accurate information can be frustrating. Our patient coordinator and patient access representatives will help you find answers to as many of your insurance questions as possible.

We advise you to contact your insurance company prior to your first visit before submitting your application to the Oregon Bariatric Center to determine whether your benefit plan covers weight loss procedures and related services. Coverage may be subject to meeting specific medical criteria or may be limited to specific procedures.

Some patients consider surgical weight loss to be such a critical investment in their health that they will pay for the procedure in the event their insurance company won’t. There are usually a variety of financing options available.
