Is gastric balloon covered by insurance?
Orbera and Reshape stomach balloon technologies are among the most progressive and effective in the world, yet most insurance companies still do not cover this important life-changing procedure. It can be extremely frustrating and disappointing to consider financing the procedure on one's own, especially because most clients have already invested heavily into unsuccessful weight-loss schemes, diets and programs.
