Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some FAQ’s we have received about our medically supervised weight loss programs. If you have a question that we have not answered, please contact us to schedule a consultation with a weight loss doctor.
1. Will Insurances pay for my weight loss program?
Insurances do not provide coverage for meal based or any other non-surgical medical weight loss programs. Some plans may allow you to utilize your flexible spending health care account (if you have one). Please consult your insurance or program administrator for further details.
2. Do you offer financing or payment plans?
Yes. We can offer financing through CareCredit® which currently offers 6 month 0% financing option. Please click on this link for further information. www.carecredit.com
3. Is Ideal Proteins Weight Loss Program a fad diet?
No. Absolutely not. This is a real meal based program designed to help you lose weight the correct way. It is a comprehensive medically managed program that burns fats and inches while preserving muscles. It is designed to help patients to get their life back and keep off the weight after they finish the program.
4. How have your patients done with Ideal Proteins?
Our patients are raving about this phenomenal program. They find it appealing because they lose weight correctly and sensibly while under the supervision of a physician or provider.
5. How much weight can I expect to lose on Ideal Proteins?
Women will average 2 to 3 pounds while men will average 2.5 to 4 pounds. Many patients do much better than the stated average, however.
6. Do I have to exercise on Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program?
No. We require no exercise in the first two phases of the program to preserve muscle tissues. Remember, muscle is the engine that burns fat. Most diets, you lose fat and muscle. Not so with Ideal Proteins.
7. Why is Camelback Health Care so different from other weight loss clinics or med spas that offer weight loss programs?
We are unique in that our core foundation first and foremost is based as a strongly integrated family medicine practice. We are physicians and providers who care about your overall health and are passionate about achieving optimal health and vitality. It is not just necessary to keep patients from getting ill; we are proactive about our patient’s health. The key is offering medically and scientifically sound wellness programs that are integrated with our award winning family medicine. We strive to ensure our patients are afforded the best chance for achieving and maintaining good health. This makes us popular because we are a one stop shop for all of our patient’s health, wellness, and age management needs.
8. Do you offer MIC Shots?
No two patients are alike. Some patients may need MIC shots and we do offer this as an adjunctive therapy.
9. Do you offer HCG diet?
We do not offer any fad diets that may be considered dangerous or improper in terms of sound weight management. HCG diet is a starvation diet utilizing Human Chorionic Gonadotroin hormones. While patients do lose significant weight in 1 month, it is very difficult and most patients gain that weight back in 6 months.
10. Do you offer post weight loss program support?
Yes. We are passionate about micro nutrition, exercise, and nutritional counseling. We also offer integrated hormone offerings not offered anywhere else. No two patients are alike but no one is left to fend for themselves after the program because we are your primary family physicians first and foremost.
