Weight Loss Surgery

Insurance & Billing Criteria

Weight loss surgery in many cases is covered by various insurance plans. Please contact your insurance company and ensure that weight loss surgery (Lap-Band and Lap Sleeve) is covered under your plan and that you are able to have your procedure at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton.

Depending on your health insurance provider or managed health care plan, you might need a pre-authorization or referral before seeing a physician or specialist. Contact your health insurance provider if you have questions about the specifics of your health care coverage.

If your health insurance provider requires a managed care referral, please contact your Primary Care Physician before your appointment and have them fax the necessary referral to us at (617) 298-0315.
