SELF PAY INSURANCE OPTIONS WITH BLIS
Financing your life-changing metabolic surgery can seem a daunting prospect—but fortunately, The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery participates in an innovative new form of medical coverage which will increase your peace of mind as you budget for this life-changing surgery. If you elect to purchase post-operative insurance coverage through BLIS, any expenses that may arise as a result of potential complications from your metabolic surgery are completely covered. No unforeseen costs—you don’t have to worry that the cost of post-operative complications will add an undue burden to your finances.
While post-operative complications from bariatric surgery are rare, in many case they are not covered by traditional medical insurance. For example, under normal conditions, if you are walking down the street and experience a sudden heart attack, your health insurance will typically cover the medical expenses associated with that event. However, most insurers will not cover any medical complications that arise following bariatric surgery. So, if you have that heart-attack in the days immediately following your metabolic surgery, you will often find yourself without coverage.
Not so when you purchase post-operative coverage through BLIS. The highly qualified surgeons at The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery are BLIS-certified, with proven track records of successful surgical outcomes. BLIS ensures medical coverage of the complications that can occur immediately following bariatric surgery—complications that are not typically covered by most insurers. And when you’re negotiating the choppy waters of self-financing an important, life-changing surgery, this is a great comfort. By purchasing BLIS post-operative insurance coverage, you know that even in the unlikely event that complications arise, your out-of-pocket expenses will not increase.
How BLIS Works
The BLIS program works by ensuring that their certified surgeons meet and maintain a high standard of quality. To maintain their certification, BLIS surgeons must:
- Demonstrate a sufficient case load within their area of expertise
- Prove a long history of successful, complication-free bariatric surgical procedures
- Pass a review by a board of BLIS examiners
- Maintain qualifications on an on-going basis
A BLIS-qualified surgeon is one who has demonstrated top skills and expertise, and for whom complications following surgery are a rare occurrence. This helps add to your peace of mind, knowing that BLIS certifies only the very best bariatric surgeons with excellent track records of success in their field. And because our surgeons are BLIS certified, they’ve demonstrated a consistent rate of success and positive patient outcomes. Puchasing BLIS post-operative insurance coverage, and working with BLIS certified surgeons, adds an additional level of security and peace of mind by eliminating the potential unknown costs of bariatric surgery complications.
