Weight Loss

Weight loss is something that millions of people struggle with. As you know, your weight doesn’t just contribute to your physical appearance. Your weight and the amount of fat in your body can help or harm your body by contributing to a healthy physique or leading to medical problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. 

Weight loss is not just about restricting calories, which is what most people try to do. Weight loss is really about correcting your nutrition, managing your stress, and, for some, working with or around chronic illnesses and medical conditions.

   Sources for Weight Loss Medication

   1. Your private insurance/drug plan – Call the number on the back of your insurance card to see if your plan covers weight loss medication or weight loss programs. If they support weight loss medication, our providers have 10 or more medications to choose from to find the best one for your situation.

    Ask these questions:

  • Does my policy cover weight loss medications or weight loss programs?
  • Are there any specific requirements or steps my doctor or I need to take, such as prior authorization?
  • What would my copay be?

    2. If your insurance plan does not support your weight loss prescription and you have diabetes, you can contact Prescription Bliss at https://www.prescriptionbliss.com/apply-now/. If you qualify you would pay $49/month for Ozempic

    3. Contact Super Drugs at 662-280-7455 to self-pay for weight loss medications.
