October through December is our busiest time of year at Iowa Weight Loss Specialists in terms of surgical volume! Health insurance deductibles are often met and health savings account dollars need spent. Our comprehensive team including insurance specialists are here waiting to help. Understandably, patients come to us with urgency to get their bariatric surgery scheduled and completed!
At Iowa Weight Loss Specialists and Iowa Specialty Hospital, we are committed to meeting the end of year demand. As of now for 2019, there is availability on the surgical schedule with openings filling up quickly.
All insurance requirements are different and sometimes it's not possible to fulfill those requirements in a short period of time. However, if you have Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Iowa as your health insurance carrier, there is still a great chance of getting the approval completed and procedure done by the end of the year.
The approval process starts with attending one of our free educational classes. Learn more details and sign up at https://www.iowaweightloss.com/weight-loss-surgery/free-class/
If you have been approved for surgery elsewhere but cannot get the procedure done before the end of the year, give us a call at 515-327-2000 and we will do everything possible to make it happen.
