At the meeting you will learn about the different procedures, what procedure might be best for you, the insurance process and the necessary appointments you will need to complete prior to surgery. The Ministry Medical Group Bariatric Surgery Program accepts most insurance plans. Please bring your insurance card to the seminar.
     
  2. Complete Personal History Questionnaire and obtain Letter of Medical Necessity from your Primary Care Physician. Copies of these forms will also be available at the informational meeting. Please bring completed forms with you to Informational Meeting. You may also mail or fax the completed form to the address below.
     
  3. After attending an informational meeting, one of our dedicated team members will contact your insurance provider to verify your benefits. Ministry Medical Group Bariatric Surgery is dedicated to assisting you through every step of the weight loss surgery process. One of our team members will follow up with you shortly after attending the seminar discuss the details with you. We also encourage you to check with your insurance to verify weight loss surgery coverage.
