Emotional Support

Obesity is as much a psychological problem as a physical one. The ongoing struggles to control weight can trigger even greater emotional struggles—depression, loneliness, anxiety, the fear of being judged and criticized by society, and sexual dysfunction. ThedaCare’s Behavioral Health Services can play an important role in providing you with valuable emotional support. Through group therapy or one-on-one counseling, we can help you lose negative behaviors and negative thoughts, and establish positive lifestyle changes for good.

Working With Your Insurance Company

Before you consider bariatric weight loss surgery, contact your insurance company to find out which procedures are covered. Here are the terms and codes to discuss:

  • Gastric bypass (43644)
  • Lap-Band surgery (43770)
  • Laproscopic sleeve (43775)

Even if bariatric surgery is a covered benefit, most insurance companies require that you’ve been on a restricted diet supervised by a doctor for an extended time. You’ll also need to go through an evaluation of your mental health.

Jumping through these hoops may seem daunting, but our staff has experience reviewing insurance policies and working with various insurance companies. Together we’ll try to anticipate and resolve any barriers.

If you find the procedures are not covered by insurance we offer another possible solution.
