We accept BlueCare State plans. BlueCare State plan approves through our practice the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, laparoscopic gastric band (Lap-band® or REALIZE® band), laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (check with your plan for coverage of this procedure) and revision procedures for the treatment of complications, side-effects or inadequate weight loss of a previous weight loss surgery. BlueCare covers all preoperative office visits and preoperative testing, as well as all postoperative office visits. Based on our agreement with BlueCare, there will be no co-pays for physician visits during the first three months after your surgery. Two nutritional visits with a Registered Dietitian are required which are covered by BlueCare without co-pay.
We recommend that you should make your first appointment with our RD, Judy Carty (tel: 860-714-6591) early on during this process so you won’t delay the approval of your surgery by BlueCare. Pre-authorization by BlueCare is required before your surgery is performed. Pre-authorization is the last step before your surgery and it takes place once you have completed all required pre-operative testing.
