Bills, Bills, Bills - The Cost of Gastric Sleeve Surgery

You've heard great things about gastric sleeve surgery, no doubt? Gastric surgery is a relatively, new option in weight loss tools. Despite its proven benefits, many insurers are hesitant to pay for the procedure.

Some insurance carriers will pay a portion of the surgery bills, but with the mean cost of gastric sleeve surgery estimated to be around $10,000, even if your insurance company pays 40%, that still leaves you with a $6,000 bill.

If money is the only concern stopping you from the gastric sleeve surgery, then you should evaluate other payment methods if you do not have insurance or if your insurance company is not being as cooperative as you would like. Some surgeons may be willing to work with you on payment options, and many times additional documentation from your doctor, may make your insurance company reconsider its position on allocating funds for the procedure.

As you're wondering about ways to pay for this weight loss procedure, how can you help but wonder about the origination of all these charges? Is it just a random number, calculated by a medical billing specialist? How are you supposed to pay these bills, bills, bills when you don't even know what they are for?

If it makes you feel any better, all of the bills you will receive for your gastric sleeve surgery are creditable. The $10,000 fee will be divided appropriately between the hospital, your surgeon, your anesthesiologist, your pre-op lab work, your x-ray fees, and of course, your follow-up appointments to make sure you are doing well.

As mentioned earlier, $10,000 is the average cost of the treatment. The cost may vary depending of course on your insurance coverage and the following factors:

  • Where you live
  • The demand for the surgery
  • Whether or not you have an inpatient or outpatient procedure
  • After care medications and counseling
  • Plastic surgery if needed
If you think gastric sleeve surgery might be right for you, explore all the financial options possible. Just make sure you are willing to follow through with your after care and lifestyle change after the gastric sleeve surgery or else your monetary sacrifice will mean nothing.
