I took it for a few months and got generic for $28. Insurance wouldn't cover it.

my doctor didn't put it as weight loss clinic. So insurance covered it just fine. Any reason for the all caps?

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?
