Financing and Insurance

Surgical weight-loss benefits are offered by some insurance carriers, while others do not. If surgical weight loss is covered by your policy, you may be required to fulfill certain requirements, such as physician supervised weight loss, an exercise program, psychology and nutrition consultation and/or or testing before your insurance company will authorize the surgery. It is important to understand and follow the specific requirements dictated by your policy within the time frame they allow. To find out if surgical weight loss is covered by your policy and what the policy requirements are, please call your health insurance company and ask about the following procedures, using these CPT codes:

  • Gastric bypass: CPT code 43644
  • Gastric sleeve: CPT code 43775
  • Adjustable gastric band: CPT code 43770
