Is gastric balloon covered by insurance?
While the Orbera and Reshape stomach balloon technologies are among the most effective and popular in the weight-loss sector, most insurance companies lag behind the times by not offering coverage for this important nonsurgical procedure. It can be daunting to think about covering the costs of the treatment on one's own, especially if you have already invested thousands of dollars into dieting, exercise and other weight-loss regimens.
However, if you have already completed your free confidential consultation with our Athenix team in Portland, and feel the gastric balloon program is right for your needs, we will work with you to secure financing in the most comfortable and stress-free manner possible.
We’ll get you the care you deserve
The first step will be to meet with our patient coordinator who can begin to connect you with dozens of healthcare lenders who offer reasonable repayment plans, affordable APR's, manageable down payments and sometimes even no money down opportunities. We will assist you with the application process, minimizing anxiety and helping you to determine if you qualify for instant approval. If these outlets do not produce a sufficient solution, we may also be able to provide you with in-house financing so that you can make your weight loss dreams a reality. Your happiness and success is our top priority at Athenix in Portland.
To reduce the overall gastric balloon cost, we perform all procedures at our own accredited outpatient facility, the Athenix Institute. It's important to note that given the gastric balloon's potential for weight loss success, it may actually pay for itself in terms of greater physical energy manifesting through earning, and less funds spent on destructive snacking and meals eaten out.
Selecting the right physician
While the gastric balloon price can be a major factor in selecting your physician, do not doubt the danger of choosing an inexperienced provider over one with verifiable credentials, education and a proven track record. Athenix board-certified doctors, life coaches and dietitians adhere to the strictest standards of safety and professionalism, ensuring your well-being throughout the process along with phenomenal results.
