Here are the steps you need to take before beginning any program at the OSF Weight Management Center:
Step One: Check your Insurance
Check with your health insurance provider to find out if these services are covered by your plan. Your first visit with the Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) or Physician will be billed as an office visit, CPT Code 99213. Group classes are billed using the CPT Code G0473. Services are most often billed under the diagnosis code of obesity.
Step Two: Obtain a Referral
Ask your doctor to refer you to the OSF Weight Management Center. We will then call you to schedule your first appointment.
Step Three: Your First Appointment
At your first appointment, our whole team will get a chance to meet you and learn about your medical and weight loss history. We will discuss the program options and make a plan that suits you best. The basic program options are:
