Call us at (770) 467-3975 and one of our patient care coordinators can help you determine if the prescription medication Wegovy® (generic name semaglutide) is covered under your insurance plan. Pay as little as $0 monthly for a month supply if your insurance company covers this medication.
Wegovy® is a prescription medication that is used to help adults and children aged ≥12 years who are overweight or have obesity to lose weight and keep it off. It was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in June 2021 for chronic weight management in addition to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.
Tirzepatide is the active ingredient in Mounjaro®. It is a weekly injectable medication in a group of drugs called GLP-1/GIP receptor agonists. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) are hormones involved in blood-sugar control. After a person has eaten, these hormones are secreted by cells of the intestines, and in turn cause the secretion of insulin. Tirzepatide is a GIP-analogue that activates both the GLP-1 and GIP receptors, leading to improved blood-sugar control and weight loss.
Do not use these medications if any of the following apply to you:
• Type 1 Diabetes
• History of pancreastitis
• Personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma
• Personal or family history of multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN2)
• Currently pregnant or trying to get pregnant in the near future
• History of gastoparesis
The cost of a one-month supply of Wegovy® retails for around $1300. This is the retail price if insurance does not cover the medication. At this time, the manufacturer provides a coupon that reduces the price by $500. Many insurance plans cover this medication. At Advanced Medical and Weight Loss Center, we can help you determine if this medication is covered by your insurance.
As an alternative to the brand name Wegovy®, we offer compounded Tirzepatide which is far less expensive. The price of Tirzepatide depends on the dose you receive. The starting dose of Tirzepatide 2.5mg costs $399 for a one month supply. This price includes the cost of the new patient visit. The dose of Tirzepatide can be increased every 4 weeks to a maximum of 15mg, however, we strive to find the balance between weight loss results, medication side effects and cost.
