Most insurance plans have some kind of bariatric surgery benefit. However, each plan has different requirements and benefits. It is best to contact the office to see if your insurance will cover your bariatric surgery, and what the exact requirements are to be approved. Most patients will be required to do a diet history for 4- 6 months, a nutrition and psych evaluation, have a BMI of 40 or greater OR have a BMI of 35-40 with at least one co-morbidity, such as diabetes, hypertension, or sleep apnea. Some insurance plans may require a weight history documented in a physician's office for 2-5 years.
