FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the cost and does my insurance cover any of the weight loss program cost?
BW Body and Wellness does not believe in one cookie-cutter approach to weight loss, simply because it does not work. Your insurance will be billed based on medical co-morbidities such as weight gain, diabetes, pre-diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, heart disease, etc in addition to your BMI. Co-pays and deductibles do apply so understanding your insurance coverage is important before starting the program.
How often do I need to come in for visits?
This depends on your personalized plan and will be discussed at your initial planning visit. Visits can range from once a week to once a month – usually 2 weeks is ideal for enough accountability to keep you on track with your journey. While the initial planning meeting will need to happen in Eldersburg, future meetings can happen at either practice location as well as virtually.
What are the visits like?
Visits will be 1:1 in person or virtual with Amie Howard, integrative nutritionist. All visits with Amie will involve some communication with a Body and Wellness Consultant who is in a supervisory role. We will review the visit content, progress and goal-setting, reconcile medications and answer any additional questions you may have.
How long do I stay in the program?
Our goal is to help you to obtain and maintain your health goals. Your consistency in building habits around nutrition, movement and mindset will take time – usually at least 4-6 months. Some motivated patients have stayed with us up to 2 years!
How do I get started?
All interested patients are required to attend an Orientation via Zoom presented by Dr. Wang. These are held once a month and can be scheduled by speaking with your primary care provider or by calling Rhiannon at ext 134.
