Does DocDay Weight Loss Accept Insurance?

What Can I Expect After Sign Up? 

After you sign up, a DocDay specialist will review your answers and determine whether medication-assisted weight loss is right for you.

If appropriate, we’ll ask you to submit lab work and help you set up your labs at a provider near you. Once labs are received and we’ve determined medication-assisted weight loss is safe for you, you’ll meet with a provider to go over the results and discuss a personalized treatment plan.

Medication will be shipped to your door (if appropriate) for free in 5-7 business days after undergoing extensive quality checks to ensure your health and safety. 

You should not change your dosing regimen or stop taking semaglutide as prescribed without discussing with your provider first.  

How Should I Administer My Compounded Semaglutide?  

Compounded semaglutide should be administered once a week on the same day every week as a subcutaneous injection of your prescribed dosage. It’s simpler then it sounds—head over to our Injection Guide for more information or reach out to WLsupport@docday.com with any questions. We’re happy to help.

I’m Pregnant Or Planning On Becoming Pregnant. Is Semaglutide Right For Me? 

No, women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant should not take semaglutide as it may cause harm to the developing child. Weight loss medications should be discontinued at lease 2 months prior to attempting to become pregnant.  

DocDay recommends pregnancy testing prior to beginning therapy with weight loss medications to ensure that you’re not pregnant. Contraception should be used for the entire duration of DocDay’s medication-assisted weight loss program and continued for two months once the program ends. 

What Should I Tell My DocDay Provider Before Using Semaglutide? 

It’s important to share with your DocDay provider all of the medications you’re currently taking, a full medical history, and whether you’re currently pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. This helps us determine if medication-assisted weight loss is safe for you.  

Medication you are taking could include:  

  • Prescription 
  • Over-the-counter medications 
  • Vitamins 
  • Herbal and dietary supplements 

It’s always important to share your full medical history, but, in particular, be sure to mention if you have or have a past history of:  

  • Type 1 or type 2 diabetes 
  • Thyroid cancer 
  • Pancreatitis 
  • Kidney disease 
  • Diabetic retinopathy 
  • Depression 
  • Suicidal thoughts or behavior
