Weight Loss Payment and Financing Options
Don’t Let Cost Keep You From a Healthier Life
Texas Laparoscopic Consultants has self-pay options to assist you should insurance not cover your procedure. If you have an exclusion on your health insurance policy, don’t meet the necessary requirements set forth by your insurance, or do not have health insurance, we have financing options, bariatric surgery discounts and self cash pay packages available.
FSA and HSA Medical Spending Accounts
Some or all of the costs associated with a weight loss program may be reimbursed if you have a health care spending account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement account (HRA). You will need to verify this with your employer or plan administrator.
Self Pay Pricing for Weight Loss Surgery
If you are paying fully out-of-pocket for your procedure, special pricing may be available. For information regarding self pay cash pricing, please contact us or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Weight Loss Program May Be Tax Deductible
The IRS has policies that can allow qualified taxpayers to deduct some costs of bariatric surgery, nutritional and weight management consulting, and approved weight loss drugs. Ask your tax professional if you may qualify for deductions or visit this IRS page for more information.
Our Houston Bariatric Surgeons are BLIS Surgeons
Our Bariatric surgeons at Texas Laparoscopic Consultants are proud to be recognized as BLIS surgeons. This distinction signifies that our doctors have met very high standards of success for short-term outcomes as well as long-term results for patients. This recognition, the result of a very selective process exclusively determined by BLIS, allows us to participate in a new type of insurance coverage. This coverage makes it possible for us to make a commitment to our self-paying patients stipulating that if a covered complication occurs within a certain time-frame after surgery, it will not be the patient’s responsibility to pay for the costs associated with the care of that complication.
This protection is not part of the overall package price of your Houston weight loss surgery. Other terms and conditions apply to this new benefit. We will be happy to go over the details and answer any questions you may have about the BLIS program. Please contact us today.
