Financing weight loss surgery

You may be wondering what kind of costs you may expect for a medical weight management program or weight loss surgery. We can work with you to find a solution that meets your needs.

Medical weight management program cost

Payment option Price
Initial 12-week session
If paid in full at time of first appointment (lab/EKG): 10 percent discount $787.50
Monthly installments Visit 1 (month 1 payment): $415
Visit 5 (month 2 payment): $275
Visit 10 (month 3 payment): $185

Meal replacements and any prescription medications are not included in these prices. As each person has different weight loss goals, each program is tailored for the individual. If meal replacements are suggested, the average price is $40 per week. If the physician orders any additional labs than those provided within the context of the program, those labs would be charged at an additional fee.

Financing for bariatric surgery


Many insurance policies include benefits for weight loss surgery once certain requirements are met. Norton Weight Management Services can assist patients in verifying benefits, but patients are expected to take an active, lead role in the process.


Patients who qualify for Medicare or Medicaid assistance have benefits related to weight loss surgery. These benefits have certain restrictions; members of our staff are experienced in assisting patients with eligibility.
