You have indicated that you:
- have a BMI of 40 or higher
- have surgical weight loss coverage on your insurance plan
If your BMI is over 50 the SIPS procedure could be an option, however most insurance plans do not cover this procedure.
Most surgeons would not recommend a gastric band for a patient with a BMI above 40, as it is a less powerful procedure and will typically result in significantly less weight loss in this BMI range.
