FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will my insurance cover the program?

We accept Medicare and commercial insurance plans. Medicare and most commercial insurance plans have “wellness benefits” that provide weight loss management at no-cost to you. If your plan does not have “wellness benefits,” your co-pay, coinsurance, and deductible will apply.

What if I do not have insurance?

Pre-visit testing will be scheduled at least one week before your initial appointment with the nurse practitioner.
This pre-visit testing includes

– Fasting Blood Work
– Electrocardiogram
– MedGem.

The self-pay rate for this pre-visit testing is $125.
Please speak with our patient navigator to review your self-pay rates for follow-up up appointments.

Do you prescribe weight loss medication?

How much weight will I lose?

On average, patients lose 11.1% of their excess body weight in 12 weeks.

Is the program safe?

We take several steps to ensure the safety of our program. All of our providers are board certified and licensed to practice medicine. Every patient undergoes laboratory, cardiac, and metabolic testing to ensure a safe weight loss plan. We use high quality meal replacement formulas that have been clinically proven to be safe and effective.

Do I need a physician referral?

No, you can call and make an appointment without a referral. If your primary care physician or other specialist recommends that you lose weight as part of your medical treatment plan, this is the perfect program for you. We will provide all of the necessary follow up information with your primary care physician or specialist per your request.
