Acquire insurance approval.
After the initial consultation, all documentation of weight history, attempts to lose weight through diet and exercise, lab results, and other records will be compiled. Roller Weight Loss & Advanced Surgery will submit your file to your insurance carrier requesting approval for the surgical weight loss procedure. We will also include your medical records. The insurance company will let Roller Weight Loss & Advanced Surgery know whether additional information is needed to approve or deny coverage for surgery. The amount of time an insurance carrier will take to decide varies greatly. You will be contacted when we receive your carrier’s decision. You may contact your insurance company to check on the status of the insurance approval.
