Insurance Acceptance
and Self-Pay Options

LAP-BAND is safe and FDA approved for qualified patients and is often covered by major insurance providers. We also have a payment plan option for self-payers.


We accept most major insurance plans; however, please contact your provider directly to confirm your coverage for the LAP-BAND bariatric surgery program.

In addition, insurance providers typically require you to meet certain qualifications and to participate in the complete program. Our program includes counseling and nutrition education; contact your provider for specific details. For more on our program requirements, click here.


For those who may not be covered by an insurance plan, we have a self-pay program. Our self-pay option includes the complete LAP-BAND program: initial consultation, preoperative office visits, nutritional counseling by a registered dietitian, psychological evaluation, esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), preadmission testing and preoperative electrocardiogram (EKG). The surgery includes operating room charges, anesthesia, procedure medications, a postoperative recovery room, an overnight hospital stay and a follow-up X-ray. The comprehensive fee also includes follow-up visits for one year post surgery, including band adjustments as necessary and addressing any postoperative complications within ninety (90) days of surgery.

For further details on our payment plans, please call 717-761-7244, Ext. 7
