At the Center for Surgical Weight Loss at Stamford Hospital, we understand that the decision to have life-changing bariatric surgery is not always based on desire alone.
Financing your weight-loss surgery can be a very stressful process, and the Center for Surgical Weight Loss at Stamford Hospital assists each of our patients to navigate their payment options. Our program director will do the following:
Call your insurance company for you and verify if you have the benefit
Walks you step-by-step through all the things that the insurance company will require to do if coverage is available
Assists in financing options if insurance coverage is not available
If you'd like more information on self-pay options, or have questions regarding your coverage, please contact program director Dory Ferrarro at 1.203.276.2370.
Will my insurance pay for my surgery?
Many insurers in fact will cover your weight-loss surgery but it is sometimes difficult to achieve insurance authorization on your own. This is why we assist each patient in stream-lining this process. Insurance coverage varies from patient to patient and employer to employer which is why its important to work with someone with experience of the process.
What are the benefits of patient financing for bariatric surgery?
Patient financing helps individuals afford the medical treatment they need to lose weight and improve their health. If you don't have health insurance, your health insurance doesn't cover all the costs of surgery, you don't have medical coverage, or you don't have the money to pay for surgery, the Center for Surgical Weight Loss at Stamford Hospital offers special weight loss surgery financing options. We will guide you as you consider the advantages and disadvantages of the various loan offers and help you to choose the best one for your financial situation.
Weight loss surgery is expensive, but it is a lifetime investment in your health and life. Don't let financial barriers keep you from achieving better health. Patient financing has helped many people afford the medical care they need, perhaps it can help you too.
