BLIS care for Weight Loss Surgery

Dr. Patel is now part of the exclusive network of best in class surgeons from around the country that have been approved by BLIS, Inc. BLIS isn’t health insurance, but rather a specialty insurance that provides financial protection for you against costs that may arise from specific complications.

As the first, and only, BLIS approved surgeon in San Antonio, just by choosing Dr. Patel as your cash pay surgeon automatically includes you in BLIS coverage!

“Many patients are willing to pay the out of pocket costs often required for a surgical procedure but are nervous about the potential out of pocket costs that they might incur should a complication arise. Although complications are rare, they can happen and the peace of mind of not having to pay for medical expenses, should this happen, helps patients feel more comfortable with their decision.” –Dr. Nilesh A. Patel

 

What does BLIS Protection do for you?

  • BLIS pays for all your medical bills related to covered complications including any facility fees, surgeon fees, professional charges, rehabilitation, and any other ancillary costs as directed and approved by your BLIS surgeon. You will not be billed for any covered expenses resulting from a covered complication.
  • Any concerns regarding covered complications should be immediately addressed between you and your BLIS surgeon, enabling the continuation of care including diagnosis and treatment.
  • Alleviates concern by planning ahead for unexpected medical bills that may exceed the cost of your surgery.
  • In conjunction with the Hospital and Dr. Patel, BLIS care coverage is included in the cost of your surgery for 90 days following your Bariatric Surgery (see attached).
