Visit our website to learn more and watch other Nicholson Clinic patients' inspirational and successful stories.

Many insurance plans have 3-6 month requirements before weight loss surgery can be approved. Start the process today to have surgery by the end of the year or early next year!

With kids back in school and many people still working remote, it makes the pre-op and post-op process easier. Most gastric sleeve patients can work from home 3-5 days after surgery. Now is a great time to take advantage of working from home as you only need a few days off for surgery.

Going the self-pay route? Without any insurance criteria to meet, we can usually accommodate patients for their consult and surgery within 30 days. You can have surgery before the end of the year and be a whole new you by the new year!

Using Insurance? Get started on your pre-op appointments now, to have surgery this winter. Fall is a great time to make all your appointments and check off your insurance requirements while the kids back in school and you have more time to yourself. You'll be on your way to a new you in the new year!

You can get started by scheduling your consultation. When we schedule your appointment we collect your insurance information to verify coverage on your behalf. We will then reach out to you, prior to your appointment, to let you know what to expect. During your consultation, the doctor will help you make the best decision based on your individual needs. Many insurance companies have an average four month process of criteria you need to complete before being approved for surgery. All dietitian and psychologist appointments can be done via Telemedicine and there is no need to miss work!

INSURANCE CRITERIA – 6 TYPICAL STEPS
Everything can be done at YOUR convenience from the comfort of your home or office! No need to miss work!

Use your FSA to pay for weight loss surgery – tax free.
Did you know you that if you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), Health Savings Account (HSA) or Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), you can use those funds to pay for weight loss surgery? If you’ve been considering bariatric surgery, but have been concerned about the cost because your insurance doesn’t cover it, or perhaps you have a high deductible, your FSA, HSA or HRA can help cover the expense — and it’s tax free!
