Your Situation Is Unique

Whether it’s through insurance, payment plans, or cash (which can earn you up to a 30% discount), we’ll help you figure out which option is best for you. Our affordable self pay rates cover all preoperative consultations, all surgical costs, and all follow up visits for six months, so you can solve the puzzle of obesity once and for all. You may even qualify for our Quickstart program.

What is Quickstart?

As insurance coverage for bariatric surgery grows increasingly intricate and less comprehensive, coupled with restricted hospital options, our Quickstart Program is designed to offer a holistic and uncomplicated solution to combat the obesity epidemic.

At Idaho BMI, our primary commitment is to ensure the success of your weight loss surgery procedure through what you eat, how you eat, and when you eat – to re-program your brain.

Insurance Verification

If you’re unsure about whether your specific insurance plan includes coverage for bariatric surgery, an excellent first step is to determine the specific requirements mandated by your insurance company. Submit your insurance information to discover the precise steps you need to take!

Idaho BMI and Dr. David Brown are Proud Partners of SurgeryPlus!

Certain employers have contracted with SurgeryPlus to offer a concierge surgery experience with specific providers throughout the country. If you know that your employer offers SurgeryPlus, Schedule A Consultation, and let our coordinator know that you are a SurgeryPlus patient.
