Who Is a Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?

Weight loss surgery is a medical procedure only suitable for obese individuals with serious medical problems linked to obesity, such as type-2 diabetes and heart disease, and who cannot reduce weight simply through lifestyle changes. Obesity means having excess body fat, leading to significant health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, gallbladder disease, type-2 diabetes, mental health problems, and a generally lower quality of life.

Calculate your BMI

Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women. BMI is one of the many determining factors that a bariatric expert takes into account when evaluating a patient for medical weight loss.

Cost & Insurance Coverage

Bariatric surgery’s cost depends on several factors, including the surgery clinic’s location and the chosen procedure. The cost of weight loss surgery usually ranges from $15,000 to $50,000, with an average cost of $20,000. However, the procedure essentially pays for itself in the long run because comorbid conditions associated with obesity lead to medical expenses exceeding $10,000 per year. Compared to that, the average medical cost of patients who have undergone weight loss surgery is around $2,000 per year.

Insurance providers are usually hesitant about paying for bariatric surgery because of the large upfront cost. However, you can increase your chance of getting insurance coverage if you can produce 6 to 12 months of documented diet history and consultations with nutritionists and psychiatrists. Basically, specific insurance plans may cover the procedure if it’s deemed medically necessary. At IBI Healthcare, we consider all your financing options and insurance coverage to help you access the treatment.
