Q: Why does the program cost what it does? 

A: Simply put: you get what you pay for. We offer an evidence-based holistic approach to weight management. 

You will receive continual, direct contact with medical, nutrition, mental health and fitness experts—setting you up for a lifetime of success. Ponder this: On average, people who are considered obese pay $1,429 (42 percent) more in healthcare costs than healthy-weight individuals. 

Q: Is the program covered by insurance? 

A: Clinical visits with our nurse practitioner may be submitted to insurance and are not included in our program pricing. The rest of the program fees are not reimbursable by insurance and should be paid out-of-pocket, with flex spending benefits, or through our financing option, CareCredit®. 

Q: Do you offer financial support? 

A: Scholarship assistance is available for those with documented financial need. Scholarship funding is provided through the generous donors to the Altru Health Foundation. Call 701.780.1500 for questions about scholarship assistance.
