BLIS Care for Bariatric Surgery

What Can BLIS do for you? Provide you with peace of mind.

BLISCare works behind the scenes with the hospital and surgeon, like a ‘factory warranty’ (comes with what you bought) rather than traditional insurance. While it is not health insurance for a patient, BLISCare is an insurance coverage plan that protects patients from complication related medical expenses. BLISCare pays for all medical expenses, authorized by an approved BLIS bariatric surgeon, caused by possible complications related to the weight loss surgery. Patients who have BLIS care and experience complications will have no financial responsibility for complication related care.

Covered complications include:

  • Cardiopulmonary
  • Thromboembolic
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Leak
  • Perforation
  • Stenosis
  • Band Specific complications

The length of protection is typically a 90 day global period; however, patients may opt to add additional protection for up to 18 months. BLISCare coverage applies during the Claim Period which may vary from 90 days to18 months. Complication must be reported during the Claim Period. Reimbursement continues up to 365 days past the Claim Period. The maximum paid benefit (on per patient/case basis) varies $25,000 (LAGB) to $100,000 (RNY/Sleeve) Range. Premiums vary based on selected protection packages
