INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR BARIATRIC SURGERY
We would be glad to check your insurance benefits, and do all the legwork to acquire insurance approval for your surgery.
If you would like our office to check your benefits for surgery, you call us at (888) NEW-BODY, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the following information:
Your Name as appears on your insurance card.
Date of Birth
Insurance ID #
Insurance phone #
Or, you can email us photos of your insurance card (front & back).
We can give you accurate cost once we contact your insurance company for details. You should know that Dr. Mehta does not balance bill patients, so you can rest assure that there are no hidden surprises. Our office manager, Lulu, is extremely knowledgable & efficient in navigating through insurance companies to get your surgery approved.
INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR TUMMY TUCKS & BODY LIFTS
Some insurances cover tummy tucks and body lifts, if the procedure is considered medically necessary. This means that the abdominal skin fold is hanging below your pubic area, causing skin rashes underneath, and affecting your daily living. We would photographs & submit to your insurance company on your behalf.
INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR MINOR COSMETIC SURGERY
Unfortunately insurances do not cover cosmetic surgery.
INSURANCE FOR GENERAL SURGERY
Most insurances cover most general surgery procedures.
