Will My Insurance Cover Any Of The Program Fees?
Please note that our office does not bill insurance for weight management fees, however, we would be happy to aid the patient in submitting an itemized bill with appropriate coding for the first visit. Some insurance policies do cover weight management fees if medically necessary, however, it is up to the patient and their insurance company to determine coverage.
Dr. Bonilla will work with the patient’s primary care physician to ensure continuity of care. A letter will be generated outlining the continuing progress of the patient. Due to the fact that many physicians refer their patients to Dr. Bonilla for Weight Management, Dr. Bonilla is unable to accept a patient into his Internal Medicine practice if they already have a primary care physician. Of course, Dr. Bonilla’s existing Internal Medicine patients are always welcome to enter the Weight Management program. Charts are kept completely independent of one another, therefore, medical issues will not be addressed during a weight management appointment
