Navigating insurance coverage and financing

If it's time for you to make an investment in your health, our dedicated bariatric surgery insurance experts will help you complete the necessary steps to obtain prior authorization. As a center of excellence, we are recognized by these insurance providers.

  • BlueCross BlueShield Bariatric Center of Distinction
  • HealthPartners preferred provider network
  • Medica preferred provider network
  • PreferredOne Bariatric Center of Excellence
  • United Resource Network Bariatric Centers of Excellence

If you have limited insurance coverage, our dedicated insurance experts will help you explore self-pay (medical fees paid by patients instead of insurance) options, and find a personalized solution for your needs. If you need assistance paying for post-surgery vitamins, Bariatric Advantage offers financial help to qualifying patients.

Procedures, pricing
If you choose to self-pay for bariatric surgery, costs of surgery will likely factor into your decision-making process. A final cost estimate will be given to you after you meet with your bariatric surgeon. For initial planning, please review these four estimates for bariatric procedures offered by our surgery center. Please keep in mind, these estimates and pricing are only for patients who pay for all surgical costs, rather than submitting them for insurance reimbursement.
