Self-Pay for Bariatric Surgery

At WakeMed Bariatric Surgery & Medical Weight Loss, we never want finances to stand in the way of you achieving your optimum health. For patients looking to cover the costs associated with surgery outside of insurance, we recommend the following as possible options:

  • Borrowing against your 401K/403B plan
  • Using your Health Savings Account
  • Securing a no-interest or low-interest credit card
  • Taking out a medical loan through a bank or credit union
  • Securing a second mortgage or home equity line of credit
  • Securing third-party financing

Our cash, self-pay prices include all costs associated with the day of surgery, facility fees, surgeon fee, anesthesia, overnight stay at WakeMed Cary Hospital, and five years of follow-up care with your surgeon. Patients must be medically cleared by their surgeon and medical team as well as anesthesia prior to surgery.
