The Importance of Insurance Coverage for Bariatric Surgery

More and more employers are offering health insurance for their employees that includes coverage for bariatric surgery. Employers who do not offer coverage can find themselves at an increasing disadvantage in the employment marketplace.

And bariatric surgery is a proven method to improve the longevity and quality of life for patients as well as significantly lowering their medical costs – in emergency room, inpatient and outpatient visits, physician visit costs and prescription drug costs.
