We ask every patient considering bariatric surgery to call their own insurance company in order to verify bariatric benefits for the treatment of morbid obesity. If covered, your insurance will specify a minimum body mass index (BMI) and other requirements. Below is a BMI calculator for your convenience. It’s very common for insurance plans to require a minimum BMI of 35 along with other specified health conditions or a BMI of 40 or greater on its own. Patients with a BMI below 35 will not qualify for surgery.
Due to the unfolding outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and for the protection and safety of our patients and staff, we are temporarily transitioning to an online Bariatric Seminar. Please register below and we will send the link for the online seminar out to you soon. We will continue to monitor the situation and will resume the live bariatric seminars when the situation is resolved.
