Frequently Asked Questions
Will my insurance company cover Bariatric Surgery?
Most private Insurance plans cover Bariatric Surgery. If you schedule a consultation, our insurance specialists will provide a free check benefit for you. Another easy way to find out is to call the Customer Service phone number on your Insurance Card and ask if Bariatric (Weight Loss) Surgery is a covered Benefit.
Why is Weight Loss Surgery different than a diet? Can the procedure fail too?
Many people seeking to have surgical weight loss have tried any number of other diets without long term success. This creates some doubt that surgery may not be effective either. But Bariatric Surgery is not a diet. It helps get to the root of the anatomic and neurohormonal problems contributing to the disease of obesity.
Having said that, it is essential for patients to follow and adhere to the recommendations and guidelines spelled out for them by the weight loss team (surgeon, dietician, medical weight loss specialist)
What should my optimal weight be after the surgery?
Your weight loss team will be working closely with you after the surgery to make sure you are safe and successful. They will help you determine your healthiest weight by utilizing body composition analysis, dietary, and activity modifications to maximize your results.

What to expect at your consultation?
Meeting directly with a doctor is a very important step and one that is commonly overlooked by many practices. The primary reason, only doctors are licensed to give medical advice. Your Eviva doctor will look very carefully at your medical history, family history, and any prescriptions you may currently be taking. They will identify co-morbidities you are at risk for as well as review other health problems you may currently be suffering from, due to excess weight. Your doctor will discuss your goals for how much weight you want or need to lose. They will also review the different surgical and non-surgical options, answer questions, and help develop a tailored plan that takes into consideration your unique situation and goals.
From there you will meet with your Bariatric Pathway Coordinator who will showcase your personalized journey for you. They will go over each step of the process including goals, overview of your insurance benefits, and potential financing options, etc.
