Why We Started Self-Pay Surgery
Let us be the first to acknowledge that the past year has been trying on everyone’s wallets and health. At Minimally Invasive Institute of Surgery, we want you to know that we are seeking ways to accommodate your needs to the fullest. Some insurance providers cover weight loss procedures, but not all. Many patients opt to pay for the procedure themselves to gain benefits from a healthier lifestyle. Your monthly budget should not be the only factor that determines whether or not you can achieve good health, which is why we have come up with self-pay pricing options and cash-pay discounts that will help you afford your weight loss surgery.
Ready to take the next step?
Time to focus on YOU! Imagine life without excess weight and what that would mean to you. We encourage taking it step-by-step and asking yourself the right questions. Make sure you have done your research regarding weight loss surgery and that this ‘tool’ for rapid weight loss is right for you. MIIS Weight Loss Institute is here to help you create a plan and turn that plan into a reality.
Questions to ask yourself
Although you may have looked into this in the past and found surgery costs in the US range from $16,000-$28,000 depending upon where you live, there ARE affordable options available. For example, the MIIS Weight Loss Institute has the lowest self-pay price in our region which also includes a 12-month comprehensive follow-up program.
Financially stressed? Let’s take a look at some of the questions you should be considering:
- What is the total package price for surgery?
- What specific services does that include?
- What additional expenses might be included?
- Is financing included?
These are just a few of the major questions that can easily be answered after a consultation takes place.
Seek support and take action!
Take a deep breath and seek support. Believe it or not, you are the most supportive resource for yourself, and this means being at peace with your decision and believing in achieving success. Once you feel comfortable moving forward, find others that will lift you up. This includes your surgeon, the team at the office as well as family and close friends. We also recommend tapping into our support group which consists of a large group of patients that have gone through or are currently going through the same journey that you will be.
