Patients will receive any needed assistance with understanding insurance eligibility. As every insurance policy varies in criteria, your policy criteria may require multiple components. The patient is responsible for helping procure needed documentation. Our Insurance Coordinator will guide you through the process all the way to your anticipated approval.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: It is your responsibility as the patient to know and understand your insurance plan benefits, authorization and referral requirements.

We recommend calling the member customer service number on the back of your insurance card to verify this information. Here are a few questions that you may find helpful when calling:

  1. Does my plan have coverage for the bariatric surgery and the treatment of obesity?
    (Morbid obesity diagnosis code is E66.01)
  2. What are my surgical benefits (deductible, co-insurance, out of pocket)?
  3. What specific criteria does my insurance require for coverage?
  4. Is bariatric surgery covered for both In-network and out-of-network?
  5. Is a specific facility required (hospital / outpatient)?
 

Financing

Financing your surgery can help when your insurance doesn’t cover costs associated with weight loss surgery or you have a significant co-payment. By financing, you have the opportunity to get your procedure done whenever you are ready.

Some patients have financed their medical costs through bank or credit union loans or equity lines of credit. Others have used income tax refunds or borrowed from their retirement funds. In addition, there are special companies whose primary objective is to assist by providing affordable financing for medical procedures.

Eviva does not endorse or recommend any particular financing arrangement. This is a personal decision that must be made by each individual.
