The total cost depends on the length of your program and how many meal replacement products you consume. A sign-up fee covers educational videos and participation in support groups. This fee is non-refundable, due upon enrollment, and not covered by insurance. You will purchase the meal replacement products on a biweekly basis at the Duke Lifestyle and Weight Management Center in Durham. Each product costs about $3 to $5. They are not covered by insurance.
Insurance Coverage and Health Spending Accounts
Provider visits may be covered by your health insurance. You will be responsible for insurance copayments, deductibles, and coinsurance amounts. Check with your insurance plan to see if your flexible spending account balance can be used toward program costs.
