Payment options for our Orange County weight loss surgery program include PPO insurance and self-pay. We also accept Medicare patients on a case-by-case basis. We generally don’t accept HMO insurance or MediCal insurance. If you are a self-pay patient, please see our bariatric surgery self-pay page.
You can use your PPO insurance to pay for surgery with Dr. Oliak if your policy covers weight loss surgery and if you meet your policy’s criteria for surgery. Weight loss surgery is often a covered benefit, but not always. We will do a free insurance verification to check your insurance benefits before your consultation.
There are typically out-of-pocket costs associated with getting weight loss surgery with Dr. Oliak. The amount varies (average 3k – >10k) depending on the specifics of your insurance coverage. We will provide you with a written estimate of all out-of-pocket costs (surgeon/program costs and hospital costs) on the day of your consultation.
If you meet your insurance policy’s criteria for surgery, we will schedule you for the required tests/evaluations, and if required by your insurance, complete a 3-6 month medically supervised weight loss program with you. Once all insurance requirements are completed, we will submit the necessary information to your insurance company and obtain an authorization for weight loss surgery.
