Hi everyone, I have been taking phentermine for the last month. My doctor wants to get me on Saxenda but she said I had to fail on other weight loss options first in order for the insurance to cover it. My insurance covers it but it needs pre auth. For anyone who has their insurance covering this; can you please tell me if it was a difficult process to get the medication?
My insurance, United Health Care, would not cover my doctor's prescription for Saxenda, not even with a preauthorization request. It appears that medicare -which is what I have - sees Saxenda use as cosmetic. Go figure. Best wishes on your weight loss journey.
