Patient Financing


 

 

There are numerous financing choices for bariatric surgery in the Phoenix area and Tucson. Our procedures can be surprisingly affordable, even if your first thought was that surgery may be out of reach. In general, weight loss surgery financing is available for almost all procedures performed. Your payment may vary based on the surgery involved, cost of the procedure, repayment period, and your credit scores or history.

If you are interested in surgical weight loss in Tucson and the Phoenix area, request your consultation online or RSVP to one of our weight loss seminars today.

Tax Implications

In the year you finance your weight loss procedure, you may be eligible to receive thousands of dollars back in potential tax savings – think of this as a discount on your procedure! IRS Publication 502 states you can deduct only your medical and dental expenses when they total more than 7.5 percent of your adjusted gross income (see p. 2 of publication 502). Adjusted gross income is your total income less a few very specific deductions. Medical expenses may include fees paid to doctors, payments for hospital services, prescription drug costs, physician co-pays and the cost of participating in a weight-loss program for a specific disease, including obesity.

Speak with your tax advisor or see IRS publication 502 for details.

Please call or email our office for all inquiries regarding insurance and financing questions.
