During your initial evaluation with one of our Board-Certified Nurse Practitioners, we will discuss your medical history, weight loss goals, and develop a plan to help you succeed.
Lab work may be recommended to determine if underlying factors like insulin resistance, hormone imbalance, thyroid disorder, or fatty liver may be preventing you from losing weight. While we do not accept insurance, we offer low-cost cash pricing through local labs.
Common Medication for Weight Loss / Management
Yes, we have utilized both of these medications for our weight loss patients for approximately 2 years.
At Aging Backwards, we utilize a custom dosing schedule for each patient, making it difficult to give an exact answer to this question. In general, if someone is starting semaglutide (0.25mg), the starter home kit is $425 and lasts 10 weeks if you go up on the most aggressive dosing schedule. If you remain on the initial dose for the duration of your treatment, the starter home kit will last 20 weeks (5 months).
All follow-up appointments are $64 (telemedicine and in-person are both available). Follow-up appointments are needed to determine how your treatment is progressing, if your dosage needs to be adjusted, if we need to add any medications or make any nutritional/lifestyle changes, obtain a refill on medications, etc.
With a passion to help as many people as possible achieve their health and wellness goals, our owner spends a great deal of time collaborating with other medical professionals and business owners across the country on how to provide competitive prices. We also belong to professional organizations that allow us to access premier pricing and group-based discounts.
We are a cash-based clinic and do not take or file insurance of any kind at this time. Therefore, we are unable to provide letters of medical necessity or prior authorizations for your insurance. Rather than playing the insurance game, we work very hard to cultivate relationships with labs and pharmacies to provide competitive prices for labs and compounded medications. Additionally, evidence-based practices and the most recent and cutting-edge research guides our care, not what an insurance company says is best for a patient.
While we are accredited to accept HSA/FSA cards, please note that it is your responsibility to know what your HSA/FSA funds are allowed to be utilized towards. If your HSA/FSA provider requires a form to be completed by our office, please bring this to your appointment.
