Contact Insurance AdvocateThe Nicholson Clinic accepts and files most major insurance plans. We are not contracted with Medicare or Medicaid and therefore cannot accept those insurance plans. Our team of insurance specialists are here to help you easily manage the process, working directly with your insurance provider to acquire approval. We are YOUR Insurance Advocates.

In many cases, bariatric surgery is considered a medical necessity and is at least partially covered by most insurance companies, provided the patient meets their requirements.

In our experience, the qualifying requirements are often:

  • 35 BMI with underlying health conditions or
  • 40+ BMI without diagnosed underlying health conditions

Coverage for your weight loss surgery is dependent on your specific insurance plan, however our insurance specialist will work with you and your insurance provider to help you minimize your out of pocket expense and maximize coverage for your procedure.

As with other healthcare procedures, patients are responsible for deductibles and co-pays. These out of pocket costs are required by your insurance company, not by Nicholson Clinic.

All procedures done by any other entity than Nicholson Clinic will be billed separately to your insurance company. You or your insurance company may incur additional charges for any of these services: blood work/ labs, pathology, dietician visits, psychology visits, anesthesia, prescriptions from a pharmacy, DVT sleeves, meal replacements / nutritional supplements.

Please contact us to see if there is a way for your insurance to cover all or part of your surgery.
