Diabetes drug’s new weight loss formula fuels cost-benefit debate


My ex nutritionist wanted me on Wegovy and when I told her that my insurance wouldn’t cover it, she then prescribed me Ozempic but wanted to go to the maximum dose.

I decided with neither and decided to leave her.

@Wave , wouldn’t your insurance cover Ozempic?

Yes it does but if I go on Ozempic it wouldn’t be for the sole purpose of losing weight only.
I would feel more comfortable it being prescribed by my GP for diabetes control.
I’m already on Metformin and my blood sugar levels have been under control lately.

Plus Ozempic is an injectable and I’m not comfortable injecting myself with a medication.
