Welcome to the CHRISTUS St. Vincent Bariatric Surgical Program.
The most important step in the beginning leg work of setting up your bariatric surgery is you!
Before scheduling an appointment with us, please call your insurance company and ask the following questions:
- Is bariatric surgery covered on my plan?
- Is bariatric surgery performed at CHRISTUS St. Vincent covered on my plan?
- What are the criteria I must meet for approval.
- What is my financial responsibility (deductible/copays)?
Finding out this information in advance will significantly speed up the paperwork and approval process.
