For patients interested in learning more about bariatric weight loss solutions, we offer monthly Information Seminars at CentraState and Raritan Bay Medical Center.

Supportive friends and family members are also invited and encouraged to attend.

If you would prefer a private consultation for bariatric, GI surgery or other speciality procedure, call (732) 217-3897 to schedule an appointment, which will be confirmed for you within one week (or sooner, if your medical situation necessitates immediate care).

Sterling Surgicare has offices in Holmdel, Freehold (Monmouth County) and Old Bridge (Middlesex County), New Jersey.

PAYMENT AND INSURANCE INFORMATION FOR BARIATRIC WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY:

During your first consultation, Sterling Surgicare’s administrative team will partner with you to determine any bariatric weight loss surgery medical coverage for which you may be covered.  

We will also discuss the Insurance Pre-Authorization process and our payment structure based upon your situation.

Patients should be aware there may be out-of-pocket expenses during the course of the pre-and post-operative period. Some employers do not purchase health insurance policies that include bariatric surgery, or may not cover some procedures.

First and foremost, you should review your medical insurance policy coverage by calling the customer service number on the back of your insurance card.

Ask if your policy covers the Surgical Treatment for Morbid Obesity which has the CPT diagnosis code 278.01. If they do, ask your insurance company to send you the Medical Policies for this treatment and bring a copy to your initial consultation. This will greatly expedite the pre-authorization for your procedure.

BARIATRIC CPT CODES FOR INSURANCE CONFIRMATION

You may wish to refer to the CPT Code list below and ask the Customer Service representative about the specific bariatric operation you are interested in:

  • Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass – CPT Code 43644
  • Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy – CPT Code 43775
  • Laparoscopic Adj. Gastric Banding – CPT Code 43770
  • Duodenal Switch – CPT Code 43845
  • Revision Bariatric Surgery – CPT Code 43848

We also offer affordable self-pay options for those patients who do not have medical insurance for bariatric surgery. Please ask us about these plans.

NOTE: Many practices charge program fees above and beyond insurance payment deductibles and co-payments. Our program does not charge extra program fees.

24-HOUR OFFICE APPOINTMENT CANCELLATION REQUIREMENT

Failure to give 24-hour notice of cancellation of an appointment or not showing up for an appointment can result in a charge of $25.00 on your account.

This charge is not covered by your insurance company and is your fiscal responsibility.
