Proud to be SurgeryPlus Providers Employers are now covering the entire cost of surgery

SurgeryPlus and Transcarent are supplemental benefits provided by large corporations such as Home Depot, Autozone, State Farm, American Airlines, Hyatt, Sysco, as well as municipalities such as the City of Fort Worth, Texas to name a few.

This benefit provides access to all-inclusive weight loss surgery with an exclusive network of surgeons, including Dr. Joe Cribbins and Dr. Edmund Chen, with very little or more often ZERO out-of-pocket costs.

Many people who have access to this benefit often don't even know they have it. Our Plano, TX, practice can help determine if you have access to SurgeryPlus and Transcarent benefits.

Bariatric surgery with little or NO out-of-pocket expenses.

Depending on the specifics of your SurgeryPlus plan, you can undergo surgery by Dr. Cribbins or Dr. Edmund Chen in Plano, Texas, paying nothing at all out of pocket in most cases. Considering that Texas does not require insurers to cover surgical treatment of this kind, this benefit can help patients start a new chapter of health and prosperity in their lives for a much lower cost than they might otherwise have to pay.

A fully guided experience.

When patients decide to undergo bariatric surgery by taking advantage of SurgeryPlus, they are assigned a care advocate who will take care of coordinating the entire experience, including travel, and each appointment with your surgeon. Some SurgeryPlus plans provide travel benefits that amount to an all-inclusive experience covering travel for both you and a companion.

Dr. Joe Cribbins has performed over 16,000 surgical procedures, and served as the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Director for over 17 years at Texas Health Presbyterian Plano, TX. He specializes in minimally invasive bariatric surgery using the DaVinci Xi Surgical System.
