Bariatric Surgery and Insurance

Most insurance plans cover bariatric surgery if the patient's weight and health meet standard criteria. Contact your provider to learn more by calling the number on your card and asking if morbid obesity surgery is covered. Provide the procedure code (CPT):

  • Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass 43644
  • Gastric Banding 43770
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy 43775

Ask: “Is there an exclusion in my group policy?” The answer should be “YES” or “NO,” not "Maybe!"
