Do I Qualify?

Bariatric surgery can lead to a healthier weight, decrease the likelihood of developing certain illnesses and improve quality of life.

If you already suffer from an obesity-related condition, bariatric surgery can improve and even reverse these conditions. These health concerns associated with obesity include type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heartburn, sleep problems, hernia, fatty deposits in the blood, osteoarthritis and certain cancers.

How do I know I qualify?

Bariatric, or weight loss surgery, could be an a great option for individuals who have a body mass index, or BMI, greater than 40 or having a BMI of 30 to 39.99 accompanied by an obesity-related medical condition like diabetes, high blood pressure or sleep apnea. Not all insurance policies cover surgery with a BMI between 30-35 but we would be happy to discuss your insurance policy with you.
