Money, pills, tape measure

Have you thought about taking real steps toward losing weight but are worried about the cost associated with the procedure that insurance doesn’t cover? You’re not alone. With the cost of different programs ranging from $100’s to $1000’s, we understand the struggle especially when it comes to something that could change your life so significantly.

The gastric balloon is different. It doesn’t require surgery, fancy meal plans, or any other things that make the cost of weight loss unaffordable. Not only does it ring in at half the price of gastric surgery, but it’s easy to finance.

Here’s what you need to know about the gastric balloon cost – and how you can pay for it.

What Is A Gaorbestric Balloon?

A gastric balloon helps weight loss by teaching your mind and body when it is full and slowing digestion. It all takes place over a year and the $6,000-$9,000 gastric balloon average cost in the U.S. includes insertion, removal, six months of check-ups, and check-ins with your weight loss team over a year’s time.

How Much Does It Cost?

The gastric balloon is currently not covered by insurance in the United States.

  • The cost ranges between $6,000 and $9,000.
  • Financing options are available. CareCredit is always an option.

What Is CareCredit?

We recommend CareCredit to help patients finance a gastric balloon.

CareCredit is a credit card designed exclusively to pay for healthcare services. Unlike a loan, it offers an existing line of credit that you can use over and over again to pay for services that your insurance provider won’t cover.

You can use it for yourself, a family member, or even for veterinary care for your pets. All you need to do is ensure that your provider accepts CareCredit.

To apply for CareCredit, visit the website and fill out the application. You get a decision instantly. You are more likely to be approved with a minimum FICO score of 623.

Once approved, you get your card within ten business days, and you receive a monthly statement.

Be sure to look out for CreditCare’s promotions also…

For example, if you can pay off your gastric balloon procedure over two years, then you can apply for a Deferred Interest program. If you qualify, then a payment schedule for $8,000 might look like this:

  • 6 x $1,334 monthly payments
  • 12 x $667 monthly payments
  • 18 x $445 monthly payments
  • 24 x $334 monthly payments

It could save you a significant amount of money in interest and have a life-changing procedure that doesn’t break the bank! If this sounds like a fit for you, reach out, don’t wait! In a year you could be in a completely different mental and physical place… act now!
