Weight Loss Programs

The world of weight loss is often shrouded in glamorous marketing, but a startling reality lies beneath the surface of many popular options:

Many popular weight loss programs like Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, and Medifast come with hidden costs that consumers are often unaware of. These programs intentionally keep the true costs hidden until consumers have already committed, leading to outrageously high bills. As a result, it's important for consumers to be informed about the true costs of these programs before making any commitments.

It is surprising to know that many insurance companies do not provide coverage for weight loss programs. This is because these companies consider weight loss to be an "elective" procedure, which is typically excluded from most insurance plans.

Achieving weight loss goals is essential for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but it can be costly and challenging. Therefore, it's crucial to find a cost-effective weight loss program that won't strain your household budget. Fortunately, with the recent FDA approval of a new class of weight loss medication, achieving weight loss has become easier and more affordable than traditional options. So, if you're looking for a weight loss program that's both effective and affordable, this new class of medication might be the perfect fit for you!

Financing A New Way of Losing Weight

Coverage for weight loss medications is not widely available. Checking with your insurance company is so important to see if you are covered and understand the cost at hand. Our medicine comes with no monthly membership fees, no contracts, no annual fees, no hidden costs, not ever.

I have employer-covered and/or private insurance

Employers decide on prescription benefits for their employees. Don't be discouraged if your company's plan doesn't include request for coverage with the help of your health care provider.

I have Medicare coverage

Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover medicines for obesity. There may be some select Medigap and Medicare Advantage plans for retirees that do offer coverage. If you have one of these plans, please check with its administrator.

I have Medicaid coverage

You'll need to contact your state's Medicaid office to learn if it covers medicines for weight management and obesity because each state decides for itself what prescription drugs to cover through Medicaid.

I have VA coverage

The VA will cover obesity management. Head to your local Veterans Administration provider office to discuss the obesity medication options.

I have Tricare coverage

In certain situations, your plan provides coverage for this medication. Your health care provider may request a coverage review to help determine if coverage is available. Please contact your Military Treatment Facility or Tricare Network provider to discuss.

I am a government employee with benefits

If you work with the city, state or federal government, ask your benefits manager about coverage for obesity medications.

I have individual and family coverage directly through an insurance company (ie, coverage through the Affordable Care Act)

Check with your insurance company to learn if you are eligible for an upgrade or an add-on to your plan.

I don't have insurance or know my insurance won't cover it.

Today's Popular Weight Loss Options

Game Changing FDA Approved Medication

So many Americans struggle to achieve weight loss success, with the existing programs and methods out there.

After all, 70% of Americans are currently overweight - with one-third of those being obese!

On June 4, 2021 FDA approval was granted for the first new class of weight-loss medications, Semaglutide or GLP-1.

This new medication has shown such great results for chronic weight management in adults with obesity or overweight with at least one weight-related condition (such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol), for use in addition to a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity.
