Blue Cross Blue Shield Bariatric Surgery Insurance Coverage
Bariatric surgery is sometimes considered a medical necessity. Therefore Blue Cross Blue Shield may cover the procedure, at least in part.
Recognized by Blue Cross Blue Shield as being named a Blue Distinction Center for Bariatric Surgery ® is an honor for the My New Beginning program, a department of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – White Rock. To achieve this recognition, the hospital met numerous criteria that included: full accreditation from The Joint Commission or Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program, a required volume of bariatric surgeries during the recent 12 month reporting period, staffing by an experienced and appropriately credentialed bariatric surgical team, and utilization of appropriate equipment and staffing.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas is a Division of Health Care Service Corporation, a Mutual Legal Reserve Company, an Independent Licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.
Note: Designation as Blue Distinction Centers means these facilities’ overall experience and aggregate data met objective criteria established in collaboration with expert clinicians’ and leading professional organizations’ recommendations. Individual outcomes may vary. To find out which services are covered under your policy at any facilities, please call your local Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield Plan.
