BLIS Care for Weight Loss Surgery
BLIS Care** is not health insurance, but rather a one-of-a-kind specialty insurance that provides financial protection for patients of a BLIS Care insured surgeon against costs that may arise from specific surgical complications. Dr. Houston is part of this exclusive network of "best in class" surgeons from around the country that have been approved by the company BLIS, Inc.
Many patients are willing to pay the out-of-pocket costs often required for a surgical procedure but are nervous about the potential costs that they may incur should a potential complication arise. Although complications are rare, they can happen. The peace of mind of not having to pay for medical expenses related to a complication helps patients feel more comfortable with their decision.
By choosing Dr. Houston as your self-pay surgeon, it automatically includes you in BLIS Care coverage!
**Many programs do not offer BLIS Care so when comparing prices be sure to ask whether this is included.
