Insurance Coverage

Bariatric surgery is a huge step toward weight loss. Understanding what is and is not covered by insurance helps our patients in New Jersey and around the world manage the cost of their endoscopic bariatric repair surgery. Located in Montclair, the Center for Bariatric Endoscopy, the “Premiere Bariatric Surgical Institute in New Jersey”, offers insurance options for endoscopic bariatric surgery to patients from around the world

Is Endoscopic Bariatric Repair Surgery Covered By Insurance?

The Affordable Care Act has given many patients the insurance coverage they need for their healthcare. With so many insurance options on the market now, it can be difficult to determine if your endoscopic bariatric repair surgery is covered. Because of this, we recommend that you contact your insurance carrier directly to find out if the procedure is covered. We will do our part to support your efforts to have endoscopic bariatric repair surgery covered at least in part by your insurance.

What if My Insurance Does Not Cover the Cost of Endoscopic Bariatric Repair?

Even if your medical insurance does cover endoscopic bariatric repair surgery, you may be responsible for:

  • Co-payments
  • Deductibles
  • Co-insurance

These amounts and requirements vary by insurance plan. If the procedure is not covered by your insurance, you are responsible for the full cost of the procedure. Should you need a payment plan, we recommend that you apply to CareCredit® and Advance Care Card.
