Will my insurance pay for an endoscopic bariatric revision procedure?
For bariatric revision procedures, we advise you review your insurance policy to see if coverage is detailed or contact your payer and get very specific guidance as to whether coverage exists in your policy or what steps you will need to take to obtain coverage. In some instances, when there is coverage, the insurance company may require you to meet a number or criteria. Some payers may be a bit more lenient because this procedure is secondary to an already performed (and previously approved) bariatric surgery. Again, this will vary by insurer.
Should you learn your insurance will not cover your bariatric procedure, we can speak with you about a self-pay option. Please let us know if this is something you wish to explore.
