INFORMATION ABOUT OUR BARIATRIC SURGERY PROGRAM:
We currently DO NOT accept MEDICAID or the COMPASS plan from UHC for weight loss surgery when it is the PRIMARY & ONLY insurance. You will need to contact another bariatric center if this is your only coverage at this time with no expected changes.
You MUST be at least 18 years of age to be considered for surgical options at our center.
- You may be a candidate for surgery if you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or greater, or a BMI between 35-39.9 AND serious obesity-related health problems to be considered for bariatric surgery.
