Weight loss faq's
Typically insurance will cover office visits and lab tests for weight loss, obesity, and obesity related conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. If you have a PPO, you do you not need a referral to come to our office for this program. If you have an HMO (such as Blue Care Network), you will need a referral from your primary care physician to see us for weight loss. You may also have us reassigned as your primary care physician and we will be happy to address all of your medical needs. If you have questions on whether your insurance will cover costs, your best option is to contact them directly.

The average cost of food and supplements after the first 10 days varies slightly based on your personal choices and individual weight loss plan, but an average cost can be found here.
