What is Bariatric Surgery
Bariatric surgery is a medical term that covers all types of surgical procedures for morbid obesity, not only gastric bypass
surgery, which is actually only one type of operation. The dramatic weight loss resulting from these types of surgeries
greatly reduces comorbidities, reducing the mortality rate of people suffering from morbid obesity by up to 40%.

Do I Qualify For Gastric Sleeve Surgery?
Because weight loss surgery is still “considered” cosmetic surgery, it can be excluded
Calculate Your BMI Here
from insurance plans that are self-funded by the employer. Tell an insulin-dependent
diabetic that now takes no diabetic medication after bariatric surgery that it is
cosmetic surgery and see your response! I tell patients in my seminar that we do not do
surgery so you look better and feel better. We do weight loss surgery so you live longer
and live better. In keeping with the ASMBS position statement for low BMI patients, we
believe the 1991 NIH criteria that insurance companies use to determine who qualifies for
weight loss surgery is out-dated. We also agree that obesity is a chronic disease and
that earlier intervention is associated with greater long term success. Therefore, we will
provide the appropriate self-funding candidate a surgical option for BMI >30 with comorbidities, especially with a strong family history of diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
All of our insurance candidates must have a BMI of 35.
