Considering the cost of treatment is an important part of deciding whether to undergo weight loss surgery.

It’s not surprising that obtaining insurance coverage is one step in the weight loss surgery process that patients seem to dread the most. Insurance company representatives can be intimidating and confusing with their complex jargon, contradictory rules and strict guidelines. We are here to help you each step of the way through the insurance process. We will work together as a team to find out what coverage is available under your specific plan, what criteria needs to be met for prior approval, what records are needed from your medical doctors to help prove medical necessity. Our goal is to help you move through the insurance approval process as quickly and painlessly as possible. This is not always a simple or easy process, but we’ve worked with many different insurance companies and that experience helps a lot. For patients whose insurance providers will not cover the cost of treatment, Physicians East Surgical Weight Loss Center does not directly provide a financing program through our office. However, outside, our third-party financing is accepted as payment.
