Medical weight loss


3 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever had to do a medical weight loss program to prepare for their surgery? My surgeon's office suggested I start one. I know there are prescriptions involved but not much else.

My medical weight loss was meeting with a nutritionist and my Dr.s office once a month. For me, prescriptions were voluntary.

My insurance didn't require it, but its very common to have to be on a supervised weight loss program in order for insurance to approve wls.

I would check with your insurance company to see what their requirements are, to make sure that what you're doing qualifies if they do require a program.

From what I've read on this site they usually require monthly visits/weight checks for a set time period, and sometimes gaining weight at one of those checks in means you have to start the program over again.
