A variety of clearances and approvals are required for you to have the surgery, so you will want to participate in our free informational seminar to find out how to get started.
No Insurance and/or Bariatric Benefits?
Weight loss surgery cost varies for the surgical procedures at Emory Decatur Hospital and will depend primarily on your needs and the surgery you pursue. A cost starting at $16,000 is probably realistic. Medicare, Medicaid, and some insurance providers may cover a portion of the weight loss surgery cost. If you do not have bariatric insurance coverage, it is still possible to have one of these procedures done on a self-pay basis. With the self-pay option, you won’t be delayed by having to wait for insurance approval. Emory Decatur Hospital offers competitive self-pay package rates.
