Lap Band Sugery Anyone?

Postby Zimra » Tue Sep 19, 2017 4:04 pm

I work for Weight Loss Surgical Center. We have nine clinics throughout the Midwest, so if you're in the area you should check us out. We have locations in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri.

If you're not in our range, check out the surgeon locator on lapband.com, and they will find surgeons in your area.

As for insurance, your coverage depends entirely on your plan. A good gastric band clinic will help you research your plan to find out if you have benefits and what you must do to pre-certify your surgery. It is important that you meet all your insurance plan's criteria before you have your surgery if you want it covered.

From my experience, when insurance covers the band surgery, it generally covers the entire cost. You would, of course, be required to meet your deductible, co-pay or coinsurance requirements.

I've included a couple of blog articles in the sources that have more detailed information. You may find them helpful.
