Post-Op LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Band Surgery Program and Schedule
Note: Program Fees are designed to cover the costs of aftercare for the three years following surgery. Insurance reimbursements are not sufficient to provide the services that are essential for the long-term success of the gastric band patient. The program is presented as a package to minimize the expense to you, the patient. Many of the services would not be covered by your insurance should they be billed out individually, and the overall cost to you, the patient, would be well in excess of the cost of the package.
The program covers all educational materials, nutritional classes, support group, and website. Band fills/adjustments are performed by a third party, and subject to their fee rates and insurance guidelines. Check with the Program Director for information about your specific liability for fills and adjustments.
