Insurance Coverage for Weight Loss
Health insurance companies may cover some or all of your treatment particularly if you have weight related health conditions such as heart disease, hypertension or diabetes. On every insurance card, there is a toll-free customer service number to call for information regarding the benefits available under your plan.
Questions you may want to ask your insurance company include (but are not limited too):
- Do I have coverage for consultation with physician about weight loss and obesity?
- Do I have coverage if prescribed weight loss medication?
- Do I have coverage if my doctor would like to start meal replacements?
- Do I have coverage for Dietitian visits?
