After attending the seminar, we will book you an appointment with bariatric surgeon, Marco Vinicio Medina-Zea, MD, FACS, FASMBS, to discuss your personalized care plan moving forward in the bariatric program. New patient appointments are focused on the individual patient and their health needs and concerns. You will also meet with the bariatric coordinator to discuss insurance-specific requirements for surgery and ask any questions that may have come up between the seminar and your appointment.
Before this appointment, you will get a call from the financial counselor to discuss your insurance coverage. Bariatric surgery costs may be covered through some insurance plans.
