Insurance is always a concern for anyone contemplating major elective surgery. We have 12 full-time Patient Advocates who facilitate the bariatric surgery insurance approval process for our patients. This team focuses solely on acquiring insurance approval for weight loss surgery. Upon inquiry, our advocates will address your individual preoperative needs and walk you through the insurance maze. We will personally contact your insurance representative.

Dr. Leithead accepts all insurances, including Medicare.

If your insurance does not cover bariatric surgery, your Patient Advocate will discuss our cash pay prices and financing options.
