Getting started is usually the most difficult part of any journey. At the OSF Weight Management Center, our goal is to make the process as simple and smooth as possible. Our highly trained staff will be with you every step of the way to answer questions, lend support and ensure the best possible outcomes. Before beginning any program at the OSF Weight Management Center, participants are required to complete the following steps on the path to their weight loss goals:
Step One: 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 Two: Check your Insurance
Check with your health insurance provider to find out if these services are covered by your plan. All health insurance policies differ, but typically your first visit with the APN or Physician will be billed under CPT Code 99213. The exception to this would be if you prefer Pathways to Health which is billed under CPT Code G0473.
Step Three: Lifestyle Change for Weight Loss
Attend an initial visit for a full medical assessment at the Weight Management Center. The results of your medical and Bod Pod assessments will help you choose the weight loss program that is right for you. During your initial visit you will discuss available options and customize a plan designed to meet your weight loss goals.
