As of yet, most insurance companies STILL do not cover the management of Obesity as a billable diagnosis. So, we do not file insurance here in our clinic. We will provide a complete Super Bill with all the information needed for the patient to seek reimbursement from their Insurance company. Sometimes, the yearly lab work will be covered.
