We Accept Most Insurance
Physician services at Medical Metabolic Specialists are billed to your health insurance. We work with most insurance companies, however some of our services, such as body composition testing, are not covered by insurance. If you need these services, you will incur some expense.
When you decide to participate in our Comprehensive Weight Loss Program, the first step is to undergo a comprehensive medical assessment which will help us better understand your unique weight loss needs. Not only do we record measurements and health history, but we also explain the process and fully address any questions you may have.
When we say "weight loss" what we really mean is a loss of stored body fat. Using body composition testing with dual x-ray absorptiometry and bioelectric impedance, we can figure out how much weight is store as body and how much is in other tissues, such as muscle and bone. This helps us establish the best interventions for weight loss and set appropriate goals. Over time, we can assess how the body is changing and if we are achieving our goals.
These specific services cannot be billed to insurance and do result in an out-of-pocket expense. Ongoing care is provided as common medical services and physician visits are billed to insurance. We make an effort to minimize yours costs, but insurance companies are good at shifting costs to patients. Co-pays, deductibles, and coinsurance apply to physician visits at our clinic, just as they do at the other doctors you see.
