Ozempic/Wegovy® FAQ:

1. How does Ozempic/Wegovy® work?

Ozempic and Wegovy work by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food. Your body’s natural GLP-1 hormones and Ozempic/Wegovy work to control insulin, lower blood sugar, and slow down stomach emptying. This can help you feel fuller faster, leading to reduced appetite, improved portion control, and fewer cravings.

2. What is the recommended frequency for receiving the Ozempic/Wegovy injections?

Ozempic/Wegovy is administered once a week as an injection. The dose is increased gradually over 16 – 20 weeks to monitor and reduce potential side effects.

3. Do you take insurance or HSA/FSA accounts?

At Anchor Medical, we do not participate in insurance plans, but we offer affordable self-pay rates at $100 per provider visit and $50 for follow ups.  For Lab works and prescription medication costs, we offer affordable self-pay rates and you may spend HSA/FSA accounts towards the costs. We also assist for obtaining your health insurance coverages.

4. How much does Ozempic/Wegovy cost?
The cost of your medication will vary. We will assist you in obtaining coverage and will work with you and your budget to select an affordable weight loss medication that’s right for you. At weekly or monthly visits, your provider may change prescriptions or dosages based on your progress.
