Insurance

Your insurance company may have criteria that must be met for weight loss surgery to be a covered benefit. Some insurance companies have specific dieting requirements, which must be completed before they approve coverage of this procedure. You may need to show the insurance company that you have attempted to lose weight in the past 12 months, and have made changes to your food choices and level of physical activity. Many insurers now have specific weight loss requirements. Please check with your insurer before beginning our program.

Returning Patients

If you are a returning patient, you may use myD-H to communicate securely with your providers, request or change appointments, review your medical record, and more.
