AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT INJECTABLE WEIGHT LOSS MEDICATIONS

Kenmore Family Medicine has been receiving a high volume of requests to prescribe injectable weight loss medications such as Wegovy and Zepbound.

Currently Medicare, Medicare Advantage and Medicaid plans do not cover these medications

Virtually all other insurance plans require a prior authorization for these medications.
A prior authorization DOES NOT GUARANTEE that your insurance company will approve or pay for these medicines.


All of the following criteria will need to be met in order for us to be able to attempt getting authorization for these medications:
1) BMI greater that 30kg/m2 as measured at our office
2) BMI greater that 27kg/m2 and a weight related co morbidity such as Type 2 diabetes, Sleep apnea and/or hypertension
3) You must check with your pharmacy if Wegovy or Zepbound is in stock ( Kenmore Family will not source the medication for you)
4) Once you have found the medication , an in person office visit is required
5) You will need to sign a contract stating you understand the risks and benefits of these medication
6) You will need to SHOW PROOF (such as receipts or consultation notes) of conservative measures taken for weight loss such as Weight Watchers, gym membership , dietician counseling.
