Insurance - BariatricXS

BariatricXS provides safe, successful and affordable weight loss surgery.

We recognize that the decision to undergo bariatric surgery can be a challenging one. As individuals struggling with obesity seek out qualified surgeons for the procedure, many may have concerns about undergoing the surgery at a hospital located in another country. However, we would like to assure potential patients that our clinic is dedicated to ensuring complete satisfaction with the procedure. Our surgical team is composed of the most experienced and highly qualified specialists in the field of obesity surgery in South America. Additionally, we offer comprehensive follow-up care for a period of five years post-surgery, during which our patient coordinators are available to address any questions or concerns.

BASIC INSURANCE IS ALSO INCLUDED IN OUR STANDARD SURGICAL PACKAGE.

The basic surgical package for Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, Mini Gastric Bypass and Revisional procedures include liability insurance for the attending surgeon. This coverage extends to any additional medical procedures that may be required within six months of the initial surgery and offer coverage of up to $50,000. This insurance applies in cases where the surgeon is deemed to be at fault for complications and will cover the cost of any necessary re-operations or additional treatments if there is evidence of an error on the part of the surgeon.

As outlined in the patient information document provided to individuals considering obesity surgery with BariatricXS, there is a potential risk for both short-term and long-term complications. Our experience has shown that complications occur in approximately 2-3% of patients following their return to their home country. However, the majority of patients, approximately 97-98%, do not experience any complications. These complications, if they occur, tend to manifest within a few days to up to two weeks following the patient's return home. Should any symptoms such as fever or pain arise, patients are advised to seek immediate medical attention from their primary care physician or local hospital.

In the unlikely event that an error has occurred on the part of the surgeon at BariatricXS, and further surgery is required to address complications arising from the initial weight loss procedure, the patient will be reimbursed for the cost of the basic surgical package. It should be noted that CRP (C-Reactive Protein) levels, which indicate the presence of infection in the body, may be elevated upon discharge from the hospital. This elevation should not be attributed to the surgeon or hospital, as it is common practice in the worldwide medical community for patients to be discharged from hospitals following obesity surgeries with higher CRP levels. This is simply the body's natural response to the operation, and it is expected to return to normal over time.

All surgical procedures will be recorded and stored by the hospital for the purpose of addressing any potential inquiries regarding the surgeon's performance. This will ensure transparency and accountability in the event of any concerns or questions being raised.

In standard practice, basic insurance coverage typically only extends to additional surgeries or treatments that may be required as a result of complications arising from errors made by the surgeon.

Prevalence of Obesity in the United States: The Struggle to Achieve Weight Loss

Obesity is a widespread issue in the United States, with many individuals struggling for years to manage excess weight. Despite temporary success with weight loss, it is not uncommon for individuals to find themselves back at square one, or with even more weight to lose. This can be incredibly frustrating, leading many to consider bariatric surgery abroad. It is understandable that some may have concerns or reservations about this option as there are unfortunately some unscrupulous operators in the market. However, we would like to assure potential patients that our clinic is a reputable and reliable institution, with a growing number of satisfied patients. Many of our former patients have shared their positive experiences with us, expressing satisfaction with both the treatment received in BariatricXS and the surgical procedure itself. They also appreciate the care, respect, and humility shown by our staff, which is just as important as the operation itself. We strive to make patients feel safe and cared for, and are constantly working to improve our services. It is this positive feedback from our patients that motivates us to continue providing high-quality care.
