CareCredit for weight loss surgery
(Stevens Point, WI) – Weight loss surgery, also called bariatric surgery can help obese patients lose weight. It’s not for everyone and it won’t let you eat whatever you want and still lose weight. Weight loss surgery is effective only if you also make permanent changes in your diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
Weight loss surgery services at Ministry Medical Group now offer CareCredit for those seeking bariatric services for a healthier lifestyle but may not have insurance coverage or may have high deductibles they are responsible for. CareCredit is a card designed specifically for health care needs and works just like a credit card, but is exclusive for health care services.
- no Interest financing if paid within 12 months (Additional plans may be available)
- low minimum monthly payments (up to 84 months)
- no up-front costs, pre-payment penalties or annual fees
Two common approaches to weight loss surgery include Gastric bypass surgery and Laparoscopic Adjustable Banding, known as “Lap-Band®” surgery. Before you have any weight loss surgery it is important to undergo a thorough preparation, including physical exams and medical tests, and a psychological profile. The entire pre-surgery process will take time - you’ll need to be patient, persistent, and totally committed to the program.
