Pounds Transformation accepts insurance from over 30 insurance plans, so chances are yours may be one of them!
Most insurance plans require a co-pay for any medical service so be prepared to pay your copay when you visit our office.
Our treatment for a nutritionally related condition is often covered under your health insurance benefits. To assess your health insurance benefits, you must first determine the reason for seeking treatment. Most insurance companies define benefits under one of two categories:
1) Medically Necessary Treatment
2) Preventive Treatment
Medically Necessary – Medical necessity means that you have a medical condition that improves with weight loss. Some of these conditions include: obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, sleep apnea, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), certain joint conditions, cardiac conditions, etc. For medically necessary treatment, some insurance companies require a referral from a physician.
Preventive Treatment – If you do not have a condition that makes your nutritional counseling medically necessary, you may still be covered for preventive treatment under your policy’s benefits.
Your individual policy dictates your own coverage and you may wish to call your insurance carrier or request that Pounds’ billing department verify your policy benefits. To request Pounds’ assistance with your insurance plan benefits, please call our Billing Department 860-906-1289.
When you come to our office to be treated, you may be required to pay an estimated co-pay or office visit amount at the time of your visit. After your visit, we will submit a claim to your insurance plan for final determination of your coverage and the amount for which you are responsible. You may owe an additional amount or be entitled to a credit based on your policy benefits for the provided services. You will receive a monthly statement if there is a balance or credit on your account.
