Financing Options and Insurance
Whether you are preparing for a gastrointestinal procedure for treatment of GERD or another GI disorder, or you are considering weight loss surgery, you may have financial concerns. At the practice of Danny Shouhed, M.D., we offer a variety of financing options and insurance billing to help our patients afford their procedure. Our staff is happy to help you find the right financial plan to fit your procedure costs into your budget.
Insurance is the best option for covering the costs of surgical procedures, but there are vast differences in insurance coverage. Our practice accepts many of the major health plans, but the level of coverage varies with each individual. Our staff can help you decipher your insurance coverage and meet the criteria to cover your treatment costs. We are here to help in any way we can to make billing through your insurance provider as simple as possible to lower your out-of-pocket costs.
Self-Pay and Financing
Many of our patients with limited insurance or undergoing elective procedures may be self-pay. For costs not covered by insurance, we offer payment options or financing. One of the most popular options for flexible financing is CareCredit. We accept CareCredit at our practice to give patients an affordable option for financing their weight loss surgery or other surgical procedure. We also accept various payment options for patients using credit cards to finance their procedure.
Cost should not prevent you from receiving the best care possible for your health. If you are concerned about covering the cost of your bariatric or gastrointestinal procedure, call our office to talk to one of our team members. We can discuss what can be billed to your insurance and financing options for the patient-responsible portion of your procedure. Contact our office in Los Angeles to learn more about which insurance plans we accept and our financing options.
