Initial Consultations at Weight Loss Surgical Center now cost only the specialist co-pay required by your insurer.
Previously, the initial consultation fee at Weight Loss Surgical Center was $50, up front, with refunds given to people whose insurance plans covered the visit.
"What many people don't realize is that an initial consultation is not just learning about laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding," said Douglas Palzer, CEO of Weight Loss Surgical Center. "It's a full medical visit, where we take a history and physical. Our healthcare providers evaluate your physical condition to determine if you would even qualify for weight loss surgery."
Information from that physical exam is given to our insurance team, who will research your plan and report back to you with everything you need to know to move forward with weight loss surgery on your insurance plan.
"Sometimes we hear from people who are concerned about the cost of getting started," said Palzer. "We hope that this change will encourage more people will visit with our healthcare professionals to learn how they can lose weight and get more of life."
For people who do not have insurance, the initial consultation price remains $50, and that amount is contributed toward your reduced cash surgery cost, which is $17,900, all inclusive, plus one year of follow-up care. Weight loss surgery financing is available for many people.
