Will my insurance pay for the DECO Healthy Living Program?

Each insurance plan is different.  Most insurance plans will cover the cost of the medical monitoring but not the cost of the meal replacements used.   DECO Healthy Living does bill the patients insurance for the cost of the medical monitoring, but does not bill the patient for copays, deductibles or coinsurance costs associated with the medical monitoring. The cost of the meal replacements needed for the DECO Healthy Living Program is $100 per week. 

Why can't I just take a pill to lose weight?

Medications can be a useful tool in helping patients lose weight, but they should not be used in place of behavioral and lifestyle changes that are needed in long-term weight management.

Who is eligible for the DECO Healthy Living Program?

Individuals must be 18 years or older with a BMI greater than 30, or with a BMI greater than 27 with a co-existing medication condition.

How does the DECO Healthy Living Program work?

Our program uses meal replacement shakes and bars as "tools" to use to help you lose weight quickly and not have to think about food.  Once the weight is off, we will transition you back to regular foods while working on lifestyle and behavior modifications to help with long-term weight management. 

What is the average amount of weight lost per week while on the DECO Healthy Living Program?

The average weight lost per week is 2-3 pounds.

How long will the DECO Healthy Living program take?

The active weight loss phase lasts as long as it takes you to lose your weight. On average, women lose 2 pounds per week and men lose 3 pounds per week.  We recommend all patients complete at least 8 weeks of active weight loss.

How will the DECO Healthy Living Program help me keep the weight off?

We offer a maintenance phase for patients to complete after the weight is off.  We recommend patients follow the maintenance phase for at least 12 months.  We find this is the amount of time necessary to create long-term behavioral changes needed to keep the weight off for good.
