Is weight-loss surgery right for you?
Obesity is a chronic medical condition which, if not addressed, will have significant medical complications. Generally, the criteria for surgical weight loss procedures is a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or greater; or, BMI of 35 or greater if the patient has associated medical conditions that are related to obesity. Individual insurance carriers may have different guidelines for coverage.
Calculate Your Body Mass Index (BMI)
Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5 – 24.9
Overweight = 25 – 29.9
Obese = 30 or greater
