Comparing Costs and Insurance Coverage
Having insurance to cover for weight loss surgery is a difficult process in the United States. You should first make sure your doctor agrees with your decision to get bariatric surgery. Then, speak with your insurer to see if you have coverage for gastric sleeve surgery or gastric bypass surgery. If you have insurance coverage, it generally takes about one year to be approved – after a long pre-op diet, check-ups, classes, psychologist, and nutritionist meeting.
Depending on location, gastric sleeve costs range from about $4,500 up to $24,000+. On the other hand, gastric bypass costs start at $5,795 and can go up to $27,000.
