The path to a healthier weight and lifestyle has many steps. Our experienced bariatric surgeons, and our entire medical team at Griffin Hospital are prepared to support you at every step of the journey. While many insurance policies include full or partial coverage for weight loss surgery, some may not. Furthermore, your insurance carrier may have several pre-operative conditions that must be satisfied before they will authorize treatment, including proof of previous weight loss attempts and evidence of weight-related health issues, that support your claim for treatment. If you don’t have insurance, are not qualified, or have partial coverage, Griffin Hospital offers a selection of financing options to help bring bariatric surgery into your budget.
While insurance and payment plans may take some time to finalize, we encourage you to have patience and see the experience through. We are happy to help you complete medical forms and provide assistance during this process, and we look forward to supporting you in your goal of a healthier, happier, and more active lifestyle.
