Do you accept medical insurance?

Insurance carriers vary considerably in terms of the services they cover and the amount of reimbursement they provide. Because of the complexity and expense related to insurance reimbursement, we do not accept any insurance reimbursement directly for our weight loss program. However, we will supply you with any requested documentation to file claims with your insurance provider, flexible spending accounts (FSAs) or health finance accounts (HFAs).

Many patients will receive partial reimbursement for the medical weight loss program costs. Occasionally, all the costs are covered by insurance.  Please contact your insurance provider for further details on coverage.
