Covering the Costs of Weight-Loss Surgery at Swedish

Swedish Medical Center accepts most major insurance policies; however, each insurance company has unique criteria for covering bariatric surgery. Please contact your insurance company directly for more information about their requirements and your specific coverage.

Once you qualify for surgery, you will work with your surgeon’s office and Swedish to review payment. Some payment may be due prior to surgery, while a portion may be due after surgery. Your physician’s office and Swedish’s Patient Financial Counselors (1-888-824-7655) are available to answer your insurance and other financial questions related to your stay at the hospital. You will receive separate bills from your surgeon’s office and the hospital for the facility fee.

If you do not have insurance, or your insurance will not cover weight-loss surgery, payment plans and other options are available. Please contact us to learn more>>
