Frequently Asked Questions
Will my insurance cover the procedure?
Since everyone’s insurance is different, even if they have the same carrier, it’s not a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. Our benefits and eligibility specialists work hand in hand with you and your insurance to determine your benefits and if your procedure is covered.
Can I use out of network benefits?
We explore all avenues possible when checking your insurance eligibility and we have great success with obtaining approval for Out of Network benefits! Depending on each individuals plan, this option may be the best for you!
How much will this cost me?
Once an insurance approval is obtained, we will outline all costs associated with your procedure so you have a good idea of what your ‘out of pocket’ totals will be!
OUT OF NETWORK BILL OF RIGHTS
YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW YOUR BENEFITS Your insurance company is required to disclose all of your benefits to you. Insurance will send an exaggerated itemized form to intimidate you.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE YOUR BENEFITS You’ve paid your premiums, you can use all of your benefits. You cannot be denied your benefits that are available.
YOU CANNOT BE THREATENED Your policy cannot be cancelled for using your benefits. You will receive phone calls saying you can’t use your out of network benefits.
Will My Insurance Pay for My Surgery?
Most people have a hard time understanding what their insurance plans cover. In a traditional pathway to bariatric surgery, you need to have the bariatric benefit with your insurance plan in order to move forward. We’ve discovered that a large number of people do not have the bariatric benefit with their insurance plan – so we work with insurance a bit differently than any other company in the country! At Blossom Bariatrics we offer a comprehensive look at your insurance coverage and utilize your general surgery, out of network benefits instead of the bariatric benefit.
If you are unsure if you have the bariatric benefit, your plans administrator can help determine if you do. Even if you do have the bariatric benefit, you may not meet the necessary criteria set forth by your insurance company in order to get approved. We encourage you to explore all of the options available when considering this life changing procedure to ensure you are moving forward with the option that makes the best sense for you.
Pricing for your procedure depends on the known benefits with your insurance and your medical history. Our coordinators will be able to give you a personalized quote once you provide your insurance information and answer a series of questions. We are confident that when you compare our costs and benefits with those of other providers you will agree that Blossom Bariatrics offers the best value in the nation.
What Insurance Does Blossom Bariatrics Accept?
