Unlike most “Cash Only” weight loss clinics, W8MD works with your insurance and bills them for the visits so you do not have to pay out of pocket for these essential screening and preventive services!

Once you make an appointment, we will check with your insurance to see how many physician visits your plan allows for physician supervised weight reduction. Most plans have up to 8 or more visits.
