United Healthcare Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery Coverage

You may qualify automatically for full sleeve gastrectomy coverage under United Healthcare if you:

  • Are 100+ pounds over your ideal weight
  • Have a BMI of 40+
  • Have a BMI of 35+ with obesity-related medical problems such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, mechanical arthropathy, lower extremity lymphatic, sleep apnea, or coronary artery disease
  • Have been overweight more that two years and have failed diet / exercise or other weight-loss programs

United Healthcare’s coverage depends on the insurance plan of each individual, as well as each patient’s ability to meet the criteria for bariatric coverage. Most of the time, United Healthcare will indeed cover your sleeve gastrectomy surgery should you meet your plan’s requirements, such as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or greater, as well as a personal letter describing your weight history and struggles through failed diets. You will also be required to have a psychological and nutritional evaluation.

If Your BMI is below 40, United Healthcare will also evaluate your weight-related medical conditions prior to granting authorization for a Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery.
