What If I Don’t Have Insurance?

Nearly 90% of our patients have insurance benefits which cover weight loss surgery. If you will be paying for the surgery yourself, your options include:

BLISCare, BLISNet, CareCredit, In-House Financing

With any surgery, there are risks. For this reason, we have partnered with BLIS, an Oregon financial company, that insures against unforeseen costs associated with complications of weight loss surgery.




BLISCare is an innovative type of insurance for surgeons to help protect their patients. While only certain surgeons at our weight loss clinic are approved for this insurance, it can provide you coverage for the following operations:

Since BLISCare is not a traditional type of insurance, it won’t help cover the overall costs of your surgery or treatment. Instead, BLISCare offers protection should any complications arise during or after your surgery. If a complication arises, BLISCare will take any additional financial responsibility off of your shoulders. This includes future facility fees, surgeon fees, rehabilitation, or professional charges.

To further our partnership with BLIS, we proudly offer BLISNet. This new program establishes a fixed package price so you can see the bottom line and appreciate the true total cost of weight loss surgery.

Not only is BLISNet a great financial solution for individuals, but also for businesses. If you will be paying for an employee’s surgery, this program will allow you to analyze the outcomes and see the true cost of the surgery.
