Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeons of Morris will be participating in Aetna.
“Insurance and cost is often a prominent factor when weighing the decision to undergo weight loss surgery to treat your obesity. Weight loss surgery has the potential to change your life, but this can sometimes be at the expense of your pocket if you do not have health insurance. We are happy to announce our participation with Aetna.” says Dr. Alexander Abkin, President of Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeons of Morris.
Your insurance may consider you a candidate for a weight-loss procedure if your Body Mass Index is at least 35 (with two underlying health conditions) or your BMI is 40 or greater (with no underlying health conditions). Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeons have bariatric insurance experts on staff to help patients get approved through the insurance process.
Dr. Alexander Abkin is a board certified general surgeon specializing in weight loss surgery in New Jersey. He has performed over 8,000 bariatric procedures in the past 19 years. Our practice is accredited by Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).
