Bariatric Surgery Fees

When it comes to paying for weight loss surgery, it is preferrable to have private heatlh insurance. The cost of most weight loss surgeries without private health insurance can leave you about $4,000 out of pocket. It is advised, especially with the changes to Medicare last year, to check with your insurance provider to see if you are covered.

You must have a referral from your general practioner or a medical specialist to receive weight loss surgery.
