At EPIC PRIMARY CARE we believe a healthy weight is crucial to your health and well-being. But knowing that doesn’t make it any easier. Losing weight is a complex process; you need more than will power on your side.
We are here to help
We offer medically-based weight management and nutrition counseling. Our compassionate team will work with you to create a sensible program to reach your weight loss goal.
We say we are “dedicated to those dedicated to their health”. We will work with you to stick with it until you can step and the scales and shout “SUCCESS!!!”.
Medicare & Weight Loss
Medicare will cover certain weight loss services and programs:
- When weight loss is a necessary part of treatment for diseases such as hypothyroidism, Cushing’s disease, hypothalamic lesions, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, diabetes, and hypertension (and others)
- Before surgery, when the weight loss is necessary to reduce possible complications posed by obesity
To qualify, you must be under the care of a doctor. The doctor must write an order (prescription) for the services and the need for the services must be documented in your medical records.
If you get your coverage from a Medicare Advantage Plan, call your plan and ask about qualifying for weight loss services. Your plan may offer additional services.
Total Health Care & Weight Loss
EPIC Primary Care and Total Health can help jump-start your weight loss with a free 12 week Weight Management program through Weight Watchers. To see if you qualify, schedule an appointment with the EPIC Advance Care Team. EPIC will monitor and manage your plan to ensure you are losing weight in a safe and healthy manner.
