Bariatric Surgery

Patient Information

All practice locations are accepting new patients and accepts insurance providers that cover Kettering Health physicians and practices. If you are considering weight loss surgery, you should consult with a primary care physician who knows your medical history and can evaluate your general health, your need for the surgery, and your fitness to undergo it.

Weight loss surgery is often the best or only treatment option for many patients, but the cost of any major operation and associated care can be quite high. Fortunately, many insurance companies offer full or partial coverage for bariatric surgery, and a number of self-payment and financing options are also available through Kettering Bariatrics and our lending partners. Before you schedule the surgery, you must secure official authorization from your insurance company or choose another payment options. It’s important to know that while insurance companies and individual policies are different, the process for authorizing surgery is fairly common, but does require a preparation.
