Do I need insurance pre-approval before making a LAP-BAND Appointment?

LAP-BAND Surgery Information


No pre-approval for the LAP-BAND is needed to schedule an appointment or consultation, but you may want to send us your insurance information by filling out our LAP-BAND Qualification Form so that we can verify your coverage for the LAP-BAND procedure. In addition, we offer free LAP-BAND seminars throughout Southern California on a weekly basis.

For more information about paying for the LAP-BAND with insurance, please call LAP-BAND VIP at 1-855-690-0560 to have your insurance policy verified by one of our staff members.
