The coverage of a gastric balloon procedure by insurance can vary depending on several factors, including your insurance provider, specific policy, and the reason for undergoing the procedure. However, in most cases, a Gastric balloon isn’t covered by insurance.
However, it is important to check with your insurance provider directly to understand their specific coverage policies and requirements. They can provide information on whether a gastric balloon procedure is covered under your plan, any necessary pre-authorisation or documentation requirements, and any potential out-of-pocket costs or deductibles you may need to consider.
Your healthcare provider or a bariatric specialist can also assist you in navigating the insurance process, providing the necessary documentation, and advocating for insurance coverage when appropriate.
