Memorial Hermann accepts most insurance plans. However, this is not a guarantee that your insurance company will cover weight loss surgery.
Your NewStart surgical weight loss coordinator can help you determine whether your policy covers the surgery and if your plan has any specific requirements. Financing options are available if your insurance does not cover weight loss surgery, so be sure to ask your coordinator about your options.
