Weight Loss Surgery - Insurance Coverage

Insurance Coverage for Weight Loss Surgery

Central Maine Bariatrics will work closely with you and your insurance company to understand the coverage and the steps needed in the process.

Many insurance companies provide reimbursement for weight loss surgery. However, insurance companies typically require patients to meet additional requirements beyond a high BMI such as:

  • History of failed attempts to lose weight
  • Psychological evaluation
  • Dietary consultations

Even if your insurance company does not cover the surgery, it may cover some of the medical tests needed before surgery. If your insurance company does not offer partial or full coverage, there are other options we can discuss with you.
