True Results has a team of dedicated people who are experts at handling the complex issues of your specific health plan, and they are here to do the work for you — for free.

If your BMI is 35 or higher, weight-loss may be considered a medical necessity which means you may have benefits for bariatric surgery under your current insurance plan.

And while the specific requirements may vary somewhat from provider to provider, most major insurance companies cover it. Please note, we are unable to accept Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, or federally funded plans.

Cash

Whether you save up, use funds from your Health Flexible Spending Account or 401k, or take advantage of a tax refund, paying out of pocket has many advantages. Our very affordable cash pricing lets you avoid insurance requirements – allowing you to begin your weight-loss journey right away. We accept most major credit cards and cashier’s checks. Talk to your True Results representative to learn more.

Obesity can increase healthcare costs by 36% and medication  costs by 77%!

With today’s rising health costs, now is the time to consider the Lap Band procedure. But you should know: extra weight often goes hand in hand with extra financial burden. Studies show obesity increases a person’s healthcare costs by 36% and medication costs by 77%, compared with people in a normal weight range.1

Knowing this, you may want to consider your own:

  • Out-of-pocket healthcare expenses
  • Prescription and over-the-counter medication costs
  • Doctors/specialists, office visits, lab work, physical therapists, etc.
  • Employment inactivity (missed work)
  • Non-surgical weight-loss programs (WeightWatchers®, Jenny Craig®, etc.)
  • Increased grocery and dining costs

In addition to having affordable options, self-pay has an added benefit — you can schedule your procedure as soon as you like. Not having to wait for insurance approval and protocols means your True Results journey can begin now!
