We’ll get you the care you deserve
Once you’ve completed your Athenix consultation with our Fresno team and decided that the gastric balloon program is right for your needs, it can be extremely frustrating to discover that this life-changing procedure isn’t covered by insurance companies. This unfortunate trend is mainly due to the fact that the Orbera and Reshape technologies are still quite new to the United States, even though they’re been around in other countries for years.
Have no worries, our friendly patient coordinator is standing by to assist you in every way possible with financing your gastric balloon costs. Remember that many obese patients have spent thousands of dollars on diet plans and weight loss schemes that didn’t work, so finally discovering a proven system such as the two-phase Athenix Body Sculpting gastric balloon program can provide incomparable value as measured in improved health, vitality and longevity. And if you are diligent about following through on our 12-month implant and lifestyle coaching regimen, you may never need to spend another dollar on a fad diet or weight loss pill.
We work with a variety of flexible healthcare lenders, and instant approval is typically supplied on the spot. Many of these companies offer excellent APR’s, manageable payment plans and low to no down payments. Thanks to the lowered costs of treating patients at our own accredited outpatient facility, the Athenix Institute, our prices are much more affordable than they would be if you underwent gastric balloon insertion at a hospital.
Selecting your physician
As a note to those just beginning their gastric balloon journey, remember to always select a physician due to their scrupulous safety protocols, credentials, training, track record and ability to communicate effectively, rather than because they offer to give a price break on this new, in-demand obesity treatment. Athenix upholds the highest standards of safety, professionalism and integrity, and is considered to be a body sculpting leader in the Fresno area and beyond.
