What does W8MD medical weight loss program cost?^^
W8MD medical weight loss centers of America offers a physician supervised, non-surgical medical weight loss program available in multiple locations including New York City, Philadelphia, King of Prussia and New Jersey! Using the latest scientific evidence in obesity medicine, and designed by two obesity medicine physicians with extensive experience in the science and art of medical weight loss management - also called obesity medicine or baritric medicine, our program is for those that have tried everything else and are serious about losing weight!
We believe that weight loss should focus on the true causes of weight gain rather the usual blame the patient attitude seen from most weight loss programs. As our specially trained weight loss physicians understand the complex factors leading to weight gain, our program is tailored to individual patients as each patient's situation is different.
Evidence based weight loss for fast results*
Our experienced weight loss physicians utilize all medically proven treatment options including meal replacement plans, anorectic medications, intensive behavior therapy, exercise prescriptions, and adjustments in medications depending on the patient's individual situation.The costs involved in medically supervised weight loss program can be divided into the cost of the physician visits, the cost of meal replacement plan, and the cost of supplements and vitamins.
Do you accept health insurances?
The office visits might be covered under your insurance plan depending on your plan and W8MD center's policy. With a few exceptions, most W8MD centers do accept health insurance for medical weight reduction. We can assist you in determining if your insurance will covers the bariatric medicine office visits. If your insurance does covers the office visits, you will only pay your specialist co-pays.
Medicare recently approved coverage for bariatric medicine physician visits in order to provide for intensive behavior therapy for weight loss within certain limitations. Many private insurance plans also provide coverage for these essential weight loss visits for qualified patients.
