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.
For your convenience, we accept a wide range of payment types, including cash, personal check, VISA®, and MasterCard®. We also work with CareCredit®, a reputable lending institution that offers an array of low- and no-interest payment plans with flexible terms and affordable rates. Qualified candidates can borrow what they need to cover the cost of a procedure, including the cost of medical insurance copays and deductibles. The process is quick and easy, and an application can be completed and returned online or over the phone. The only information you need is your name, address, date of birth, and social security number. A response typically will be returned the same day.
We want to make losing weight as simple and straightforward as possible, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team to learn more. 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.
