INSURANCE WONT COVER THE DOCTOR VISIT IF HE/SHE CODES IT AS OBESITY FOR THE CLINIC VISIT. MY INSURANCE REFUSED TO PAY MY DAUGHTER'S VISIT R/T DOCTOR CODED THE VISIT AS OBESTIY.- $285.00 VISIT. WTH?? HOWEVER, MY INSURANCE WILL COVER THE MEDICATION WITH 35$ COPAY.
I agree with the PP. It really depends on your insurance coverage. I know when my doctor put me on phentermine, I had to pay a $30 co pay since there is no generic for it. As far as the weight loss program, i did it through her office, so each weighin and appt was my co-pay. Some insurance coverage may extend to Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers as well.

Yes. It varies by insurance carrier and plan.

Does anybody have any experience/knowledge with doctor prescribed weight loss programs and insurance coverage?
