If you are considering this plan, reach out to your local Medi Weightloss provider and ask specific questions about cost and insurance before you invest. You might also want to ask to see a sample meal plan to see if it is something that you feel you can follow. In addition, you can speak with your healthcare provider to get recommendations and suggestions. The more questions you ask, the more likely you will be to find a program that fits your needs.
The risk of an early death for an obese person is twice that of a non-obese person, according to recent studies. Morbid obesity can cause life-threatening health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Weight loss surgery decreases your chance for these and other conditions, including sleep apnea, gastric reflux, asthma, arthritis and migraines. Evidence suggests that weight loss also lowers the risk of some cancers that are increased with morbid obesity, including breast, endometrial, colon and prostate cancers.

An upper body lift may consist of an arm lift, breast lift, and possibly breast augmentation. For men, a male breast reduction procedure may also be included.
The ReShape Duo weight loss programme will be offered at the London Bridge Hospital by Dr Jude Oben, Consultant Gastroenterologist and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians Obesity Working Party.

There are many variables and factors in the complex world of health insurance. Most providers have so many different plans that we cannot give general advice to our patients. We will provide you with a “super bill” for your insurance company. This is signed by our physician with proper coding and any other requirements. You can then submit the bill to your Insurance Carrier for reimbursement. Although we do not see any monies ourselves, we do know that over 50% of our patients do get reimbursed for medical fees.
