Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is a calculation that helps determine a healthy body weight based on your height. It is also used by insurance companies to determine if you are eligible for weight loss surgery coverage.
Your BMI is 35 to 40 AND you have a major health complication such as:
Cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or significant heart disease
Debilitating joint pain
Uncontrolled GERD or acid reflux
If your BMI is below 35, your insurance provider may deny coverage for weight loss surgery. We also know that this can change, as your weight varies over time based on where you are in the dieting cycle.
