The bariatric surgery industry is continuing to grow rapidly as more and more Americans face obesity. Being overweight is known to cause a number of health problems, which some individuals can treat with diet and exercise alone. However, for others, weight loss might not come as easily making weight loss surgery an attractive option. According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, weight loss surgery can benefit the patient in a number of ways including improving or resolving high blood pressure, sleep apnea, asthma and other obesity-related breathing disorders, arthritis, lipid (cholesterol) abnormalities, gastroesophageal reflux disease, fatty liver disease, venous stasis, urinary stress incontinence, pseudotumor cerebri, and more. There are also many psychological benefits associated with surgery such as an increase in self-esteem and self-confidence.

With all the benefits of bariatric surgery, patients are often disappointed to learn that insurance cannot cover the cost, or the process of receiving coverage is long and complicated and includes months of testing. If the patient receives help from their insurance, many will still face out-of-pocket costs from high deductibles. Patients are in need of an affordable financing program they can use to get the treatment they need and back on track towards a healthy lifestyle. Most financing options that exist for patients charge retroactive interest often causing more harm than good. Prosper Healthcare Lending is different. We are disrupting the industry by providing access to a healthier loan product that is transparent—no “retroactive” or “hidden” interest, and no prepayment penalties—and covers any cost associated with weight loss surgery, including high deductibles.
