Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in America. In fact, obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States, surpassed only by cigarette smoking. These statistics are alarming and are part of the reason a growing number of people turn to bariatric surgery to help them attain a healthy, active lifestyle. We know obesity is not a character defect or a lack of willpower, but rather a serious condition that can affect a person’s health both mentally and physically.
If you are considering bariatric surgery, you are probably well aware that most insurance companies require participation in a medically supervised weight loss program for six months before they will consider covering the costs of weight loss surgery.
These requirements vary greatly per insurance company and can be very confusing and misleading. Premier Fitness & Weight Loss will work with your primary care doctor and insurance company to ensure all the requirements necessary for approval are met.
Upon completion of our program, you will not only have met your pre-surgical insurance requirement, you will have the knowledge and tools needed to continue your weight loss journey after surgery.
