Insurance Coverage For Medical Weight Loss
Why Pay Out Of Pocket To The “Cash Only” Weight Loss Clinics?
Did you know that the new Affordable Care Act Passed in September, 2010 mandates all insurances, including Medicare, to provide full insurance coverage for obesity screening and treatment for all adults without copays or deductibles? Medicarecovers up to 22 visits to the obesity medicine physician for those that are obese and if you manage to lose 6.6 lbs. in 6 months, the coverage will be extended for another 6 months.
There might be metabolic factors such as insulin resistance contributing to your weight gain. Insulin resistance is common, and leads to unhealthy belly fat accumulation leading to difficulty losing weight. Up to 35% of all adults have insulin resistance to a degree of pre-diabetes according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Under the direction of Dr. Prab Tumpati, W8MD Weight Loss Centers was founded a year ago because of his passion to overcome obesity and attempt to make a difference. Dr. Tumpati has passed a written board examination in the field of Bariatric Medicine and is also Board Certified in Sleep Medicine and Internal Medicine. Dr. Tumpati partners with each patient to develop a custom weight management program to best meet their individual needs taking into account their medical history, lifestyle and goals.
Sleep Disorders and Weight
Since weight and sleep go together, most of the W8MD centers are able to address sleep issues such as snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia and restless leg syndrome to name a few.
Most Insurances Accepted!
Unlike most of the cash only weight loss clinics, we accept most health insurances for the visits with a cash discounted program for those that do not have health insurance. W8MD is one of the first obesity medicine programs to work with insurances for this essential service.
