Insurance and Costs

At Providence Saint Joseph, we help explain your insurance benefits but we ask that you contact your insurance provider to confirm your individual benefits.

There are other fees required by weight loss surgery in addition to copays and coinsurance. We will discuss these fees with you when you come in for your consultation.

Surgeries not covered by insurance must be self-paid. Unfortunately, there are no financing options available.
