Requirements for conversion from Band to sleeve
Your BMI is now below 35. It may be an uphill battle for you. You may have to prove that there is a complication of the band such as slippage, in order to get your insurance company to pay for it. The waiting period is doctor-specific.
Your other option is to pay for the conversion on your own. I take care of many such patients. Our total price for conversion from band to sleeve is about $13,000.
