Weight Loss Clinics: Insurance Vs. Out Of Pocket
- Posted on: Mar 1 2018
You have a lot of options when it comes to weight loss programs. From at-home, do-it-yourself diets and exercise regimens to assisted weight-loss programs created by medical professionals, the choices can be daunting. When you’ve tried doing it on your own without success, and have decided that you need a professional, medically-supervised program that works, how do you know which is right for you? How can you tell what works, and what is just a new twist on something you’ve tried before? To add to the confusion, some weight loss clinics are now accepting insurance as a form of payment from their patients. We’re here to help you determine which program is best for you Here are a few reasons you can receive better care at a self-pay weight loss clinic.
At Rejuvenate MD, our practitioners decide if a prescription appetite suppressant is necessary in order for the patient to better reach their goal. After reviewing blood work and an EKG, we will help you determine the best route to get the results you’re looking for. If a prescription is written, it will likely be for a 30 day supply. Often, clinics that accept insurance only give a 7-day prescription with the expectation of patients coming in weekly. Nobody has time for this!
Plans end up costing about the same
After co-pays, deductible minimums, and required supplementation, some clinics that accept insurance can end up costing the same, if not more than if a patient were to pay out of pocket. Another cost-saving benefit is that our clinic is contract free. You have the freedom to decide when your journey begins and ends – without being penalized for achieving your weight loss goals sooner rather than later!
Personal attention, customized care
Some medi-weight loss providers offer a one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. This can feel impersonal and discouraging, and even make you feel that you’re being rushed through the “system.” Since we all have different needs and goals, it’s important that we listen to you, every step of the way, so that we can provide you with the best results possible. At Rejuvenate MD, you can expect to see a friendly smile greet you at the door and a comfortable visit that will make you feel at home. From the front desk staff to our highly experienced clinicians, you will feel assured that we have your best interests in mind. Your weight loss experience will feel personal and customized throughout your entire journey.
You have options
As we said, some weight loss clinics feel that there is a plan that is one-size-fits-all. At Rejuvenate MD, we offer 4 different plans that vary based on each patient’s needs and budget. Our providers will help you to determine which plan is best for you, and help you every step of the way.
