Does insurance cover the cost of the program?
Most patients have metabolic conditions that have a medical diagnosis code, which is determined after Dr. Cederquist and Adriana do their evaluation. For example: high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance, and vitamin deficiency are all medical diagnoses that insurance companies cover and will often reimburse our patients for. We are not a preferred provider on most insurance plans as many do not have a category for bariatric medicine. For that reason we are considered by most plans to be an Out of Network Provider. The majority of our patients get some insurance reimbursement for what we do however, it is health plan specific.
