Costs and Financing for Bariatric Surgery
Bariatric Surgery Costs and Financing at Butler Health System
Butler Health System (BHS) performs three types of bariatric surgeries.
The following information applies to insurance coverage, costs, and financing
for these procedures. If you have any further questions, please contact
our office at BHS Bariatrics.
Insurance Coverage - Due to the health concerns that are caused or amplified by being severely
overweight, many health insurance plans provide benefits for this type
of procedure. Once you are approved as a viable candidate for bariatric
surgery, a member of the Butler Surgical Associates team will help determine
if your insurance plan provides the necessary coverage.
Financing - In the event that your health insurance policy does not afford coverage
for weight loss surgical procedures, you will be responsible to secure
financing. Financing arrangements are the patient’s responsibility.
Neither Dr. Lee, Dr. Maalouf nor any member of his practice can secure
financing on behalf of any patient.
