Tips:

  • Please contact your private insurance and speak with your benefits manager to find information regarding weight loss program coverage. Some insurance companies will reimburse a portion of the costs if you call it a PROGRAM instead of a CAMP, but this responsibility is ultimately between you and your insurance company. Camp does not accept or bill insurance.
  • Most FLEX plans will reimburse for weight loss programs when prescribed by a physician.
