Why Consider Financing?
With today’s rising health costs, it’s normal to wonder if you can afford using financing for the weight loss surgery. But you should know: extra weight often goes hand in hand with extra financial burden. Studies show obesity increases a person’s healthcare costs by 36% and medication costs by 105%, compared with people in a normal weight range. Knowing this, you may want to consider your own:
- Out-of-pocket healthcare expenses.
- Prescription and over-the-counter medication costs.
- Doctors/specialists, office visits, lab work, physical therapists, etc.
- Employment inactivity (missed work).
- Nonsurgical weight loss programs (WeightWatchers®, Jenny Craig®, etc.).
- Increased grocery and dining costs.
For this reason, financing your surgery may also reduce your weight-related costs
Exclusive BLISCare Surgical Complication Protection
BLISCare is an innovative, one-of-a-kind insurance available to “best-in-class” physicians. BLISCare is not health insurance, but rather it protects the patients of a BLISCare insured surgeon against covered complication related medical expenses should they occur form a BLISCare covered procedure. It works like a financial backstop. Protection from medical bills due to a surgical complication comes with what you buy when you choose a BLISCare physician to perform your surgical case.
With BLISCare, the physician is able to make a commitment that, should the patient suffer a covered surgical complication, the patient will have access to additional medical care up to the procedure benefit limit. BLISCare is available in plans that cover this risk for up to 60 months following surgery.
You can get more information about our BLISCare during your consultation with Dr. Paul Wizman.
