If you have tried dieting and exercising, but still are finding it difficult to lose weight and keep it off, you may want to consider a weight loss surgery to help you lose the weight you need to get your life back. If you are worried about the cost of weight loss surgery because either your insurance does not cover the procedure or because you do not have insurance, then you should be looking for weight loss surgery financing. LendingUSA can provide financing for weight loss surgery and other medical procedures.
By securing weight loss surgery financing, you will not only get your life back, but you could potentially save yourself thousands of dollars in medical costs that your future may hold if you do not act now to get your weight down and under control.
Can weight loss surgery be financed?
Yes, of course, you can finance weight loss surgery. To find out if you qualify for weight loss surgery financing, you can apply at LendingUSA. At LendingUSA you can qualify for up to $12,000 to fund your gastric bypass, sleeve, band, any other weight-loss surgical procedure. Prequalifying is easy on the LendingUSA website. Within a few minutes, you can find out how much you could qualify for and at what interest rates.
First, simply go to the LendingUSA website and enter in some personal information as well as some financial and employment information. Once all the fields have been filled and the information has been submitted, a “soft pull” credit check will be conducted to see if you qualify and at what interest rates. A soft pull credit check has no impact on your credit score whatsoever.
Once you are preapproved, you can then view all the terms and conditions of the weight loss surgery financing. If you can afford the payments, you can move forward with securing financing. If you accept the loan offer, a hard credit pull will probably need to be done to finalize your approval. As a result, you may see your credit score drop some, but over time with on-time payments your credit should recover. In some cases, a medical loan can even improve your credit score. After approving a hard credit pull and submitting any additional information, you can receive funds in as little as one business day, although funding times can vary.
Can you get weight loss surgery without insurance?
If you do not have health insurance, you can still get weight loss surgery to help improve your health and your overall quality of life. One of the most common ways to acquire the funds to get weight loss surgery is through a personal loan, also known as a medical loan. A medical loan can allow you to pay for all or most of your upfront surgery costs and then pay for it over time by making monthly payments. Some lenders, such as LendingUSA, even offer 0% APR options for those who can pay for the entire loan amount within 6-months of the loan disbursement date. For some, it may not be feasible to repay the entire loan in just 6-months but a medical loan can still save hundreds or even thousands of dollars compared to using a credit card for financing.
Even if you have insurance, some insurance companies will not cover the costs of weight loss surgery. Again, by using a medical loan, you can bypass your insurance company and pay off the cost of your surgery with monthly payments. You and the lender will agree upon the interest rate and the length of the loan repayment period. Those two factors, along with the loan amount, can determine what kind of monthly payments you will need to make and for how long. Make sure you choose a loan repayment period that provides you with monthly payments that you can afford. You will want to avoid additional fees and penalties that can occur if you start making late payments. Be sure you are financially prepared to take on the amount needed for the weight loss surgery in the form of a loan. Any late payments and/or default on the loan will have a lasting negative impact on your credit score.
What weight loss surgery has the best results?
Many studies and clinical trials have found gastric bypass surgery to be the most effective in terms of the greatest overall weight loss results. Though gastric bypass surgery can have the most dramatic results, it can also have the most complications. Therefore, anyone considering the procedure should consult with their physician and review the potential complications that may occur.
One study that was conducted by analyzing the results of 25,000 people who had gastric bypass surgery saw an average weight loss of 31% in the first year and an average weight loss of 25% over 5 years.
Compared to the other procedures that were performed in the same study, for example, the sleeve gastrectomy, and banding, gastric bypass had the best results.
What are the pros and cons of gastric bypass surgery?
Gastric bypass surgery is not for everyone. You should talk to your doctor to make sure you are in well enough condition for an invasive surgery like gastric bypass surgery. Even if you get the green light from your doctor, there are other pros and cons you should consider before following through with the procedure.
Let us take a close look at what the pros and cons of gastric bypass surgery are:
- Rapid weight loss due to the decreased capacity of food in your body..
- Reduction of excess body weight by an average of up to 75% in one year.
- Resolve Type 2 diabetes in 90% of individuals who have the procedure.

What credit score do you need to finance weight loss surgery?
Most lenders will have a minimum credit score requirement. If you have a low credit score, you may want to see if the lender can disclose the minimum credit score requirement before applying. Just because you meet a credit score requirement, does not mean you are guaranteed to qualify for a loan. Most lenders will consider other factors in addition to credit score. These factors can include debt-to-income ratio and annual income. At LendingUSA, we can approve patients with credit scores 620 or better. If your credit score is around 620 or better, you should go ahead and see if LendingUSA can provide the weight loss surgery financing that you need.
