Insurance and Financing Information
Bariatric surgery is inaccurately considered by many a type of cosmetic surgery. As such, many are surprised to learn that some insurance carriers offer bariatric benefits. Unfortunately, not every insurance provider offers bariatric benefits. PPO and POS are the only insurance carriers may offer their customers LAP-BAND® coverage. Even when they do, there are still strict guidelines that must be followed before they will provide coverage. oBand® Miami has established a team of patient advocates with the experience and expertise in submitting the proper paperwork and testimonials required to appeal for insurance coverage of your LAP-BAND® procedure.
Having the bariatric surgery covered by insurance is a determining factor for most patients. Therefore, in the event coverage is not initially offered, oBand® Miami will continue to present your case if you are a candidate with extenuating circumstances. Our surgeons and patient advocates understand that your LAP-BAND® procedure is an effective treatment of hypertension, sleep apnea and other obesity-related co-morbidities. For this reason, we have taken it upon ourselves to remind your insurance provider that they should cover this form of treatment.
