Cash Pay

For patients who do not have insurance coverage for weight loss surgery, a bariatric exclusion in their policy, or who do not wish to go through insurance to supplement their surgery cost or adhere to certain insurance-mandated waiting periods or other requirements, Advanced Bariatric & Surgical Specialists also offers self-funded, or self-pay bariatric surgery options. Our team has worked to make our weight loss surgery pricing transparent and as inclusive as possible.
