Through consultations and our seminars, we have found that concerns about the cost of bariatric surgery are common among our patients. But surgery designed to facilitate weight loss in Tucson, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe, AZ, can be surprisingly affordable, especially when compared with the cost of remaining significantly overweight. Some factors to consider when comparing the cost of bariatric surgery to the alternative:
- The cost of food – Research indicates that a seriously overweight individual spends approximately $6,100 annually on groceries and dining out.
- Prescriptions and other out-of-pocket medical expenses – Studies show that these average more than $3000 annually for significantly overweight individuals.
- Other weight loss programs – Overweight individuals typically spend $700 annually on other diet and weight loss programs.
Another consideration is that your bariatric surgery procedure may result in a tax savings. Medical and dental expenses are tax deductible when they total more than 7.5% of your adjusted gross income (see p. 2 of IRS publication 502).
Additionally, Weight Loss Institute of Arizona can work with you to help make your weight loss surgery a reality through the following means:
For individuals undergoing surgery with little or no insurance coverage, we offer supplemental insurance through BLISCare for financial protection and peace of mind.
If you are significantly overweight, don't let financial concerns keep you from getting your life back. Let our bariatric surgery specialists help you find payment options that work for you. Request your consultation online or RSVP to one of our weight loss seminars today.
