At Arch Bariatrics in St Louis we accept most major health insurance plans. Contact us for a free insurance benefits check to find out if your insurance covers weight loss procedures.


Medical Spending Accounts

You can pay for the bariatric surgery with Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Healthcare Spending Accounts (HSA). If you participate in an employer sponsored FSA or HSA, this is a good opportunity to invest your pre-tax dollars to build your health. Consult your spending accounts administrator to see if you qualify.


Self-Pay Options

Although insurance companies are increasingly recognizing the value and importance of metabolic surgery such as the gastric sleeve surgery, going through the health insurance—even for those who have it—may not always be the right approach.
