Keeping Costs Low So You Won't Have Price Shock
Weight Loss Programs
There's a shocking truth hidden beneath the glitz and glamour associated with many of today's most popular weight loss options:
The cost is outrageous! Most consumers are completely unaware of the costs the come with popular programs like Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, and Medifast. That's because most of these popular programs don't want you to know the true costs until you've already committed!
Even more shocking is the fact the most insurance companies don't cover the weight loss program. That's because most insurance companies view weight loss efforts to be "elective" procedures, and that means their costs are typically not covered under most plans.
Having to pay out of pocket directly impacts your household budget, so it's extremely critical that your weight loss program is the most cost-effective program out there. Thanks to the recent FDA approval of a new class of weight loss medication, it is no easier and less expensive than most traditional options!
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.

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.
