Insurance pre-authorization process for bariatric surgery varies by health plan, and may take up to nine months to complete. For patients living with serious or life-threatening conditions such as severe Diabetes or high blood pressure, this delay may be costly. For individuals interested in a more expedited process, a self-financed pathway can be considered. Using this pathway, surgery is made available within 3 weeks, for otherwise suitable candidates. In addition to individuals with time-sensitive health conditions, the self-financed pathway is also chosen by individuals without insurance coverage or benefits, or those with closed network coverage (e.g., Kaiser Permanente patients).
