Insurance Assistance Overview
Beginning in 2012, the Medical Weight Loss program directed by Dr. Jennifer Seger stopped accepting insurance and became a private pay solution to weight loss. This was a necessity as health insurance programs currently do not reimburse physicians for medical weight loss services. With the recent declaration by the American Medical Association that obesity is a disease, we hope to see all insurances begin to reimburse physicians for care directed at reducing obesity and obesity driven disease. Until then, we are happy to assist our patients with submitting the necessary information directly to their insurance provider. We provide patients with an itemized statement of services with a procedure code and diagnosis code that can be submitted for reimbursement directly to you. We include an easy to follow 3-step instruction sheet for self-submission to your insurance company. We also have experienced staff members that are always happy to help you.
