It is your responsibility to verify your coverage and criteria with your individual insurance plan.

Questions to Ask

  • Is bariatric surgery covered under your insurance plan?
  • What are the plan-specific requirements needed to obtain authorization for bariatric surgery? (request in writing)

Note: If insurance changes during the process, you will need to re-confirm plan cover and requirements, and alert office.
