Bariatric Surgery Costs and Insurance
The staff at each UPMC Bariatric Surgery Center location will help you assess bariatric surgery costs and the financial obligations of your surgical procedure, as well as pre- and postoperative care.
Bariatric Surgery Insurance Coverage
Many insurance plans cover bariatric surgery.
Review your insurance policy to see:
- If weight loss surgery is a covered service
- How much you may be expected to pay yourself
- If you must meet any additional requirements for coverage
Insurance companies usually require at least six to 12 consecutive months of documented diet history. Many also require nutrition and psychiatric consultations.
UPMC's Presurgical Lifestyle Program meets these insurance requirements.
Our office staff is available through every step of the process, to provide you and your insurance plan with additional information and details of bariatric surgery costs.
