Revolutionary medication

Wegovy is semaglutide (a GLP-1) that may be prescribed for weight loss, if appropriate. It’s a once-weekly shot that works by mimicking your body’s natural hormones, helping you feel fuller faster and for longer.

Medication is not included in the cost of the Body Program. But don’t worry, our insurance concierge partners explore all options to help get you covered. Wegovy is FDA-approved for weight loss.

  • Wegovy vs. Ozempic: Which is right for you?

    Semaglutide injection was first approved under the brand name Ozempic in 2017 as a treatment for type 2 diabetes.

    In 2021, the FDA approved the drug under the brand name Wegovy as a weight loss medication. Doctors often prescribe both for weight loss, but there are a few key differences between them.

Our insurance concierge partners will work to find you coverage for medication.

Here's how they'll do it:

We know this can be a headache, so the team will take care of communicating with your insurance company. They’ll even handle the paperwork.

The team will look into the medication options that are right for you. If you get denied for one medication, they’ll look for other options that are clinically appropriate for you. And, once approved, the team will help find a pharmacy that can fulfill your prescription.

If your insurance doesn’t cover the cost of your medication, the team will see if there are patient access programs that would help reduce your out-of-pocket cost. If you want to explore cash pay options, they’ll help you figure out the available options in your area.

First the team will call local pharmacies, but if there isn’t one able to fulfill your prescription, they’ll search for a pharmacy to send you the medication by mail. Even when there’s a national supply chain shortage, the team won’t stop working on your behalf.

How it works

We help you lose weight by pairing revolutionary medication with coaching, care, and healthy lifestyle changes to make it last.

Take five minutes to share your health history and weight loss goals.

Through an at-home collection kit or in-person testing at Quest, we'll learn if you're good for treatment.

Wegovy 101

What is Wegovy?

Wegovy is a brand-name version of the generic medication semaglutide, which is a type of medication called a glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonist. Instead of that tongue-twister of a name, we call these medications “GLP-1s” for short. Wegovy is FDA-approved and clinically proven to help with weight loss. How? It acts like a natural hormone your body uses to regulate blood sugar and appetite—key steps in resetting your biological set point to help you maintain a new, lower weight. In fact, in the pivotal clinical trial people who combined Wegovy with lifestyle changes lost an average of 9% of their body weight after 20 weeks, and 14.9% after 68 weeks. Learn more about Wegovy and weight loss.

How does Wegovy work?

Wegovy works by mimicking the hormone GLP-1, which slows digestion and helps your brain regulate appetite by reducing hunger sensations. As your digestion slows, you may feel full longer and therefore eat less, which can lead to weight loss.

What is Wegovy’s dosing?

Wegovy dosing starts out low, then gradually increases over the first few months until a steady dose is reached. If prescribed, your Ro-affiliated provider will work with you to find the schedule and dosing that’s right for you. As an example, your provider may start you out on the lowest dose, 0.25 mg injected once weekly for the first month and slowly ramp you up to the maximum dose of 2.4 mg once weekly over the course of several months. This will depend upon your specific situation and your provider’s guidance.

How do you take Wegovy?

Wegovy comes in a prefilled injection pen. If prescribed, you (or someone in your household) will administer the injection under the skin of your stomach, thigh, or arm once a week. While a routine injection may sound intimidating, the Wegovy pen uses a tiny needle designed to minimize discomfort. You’ll also receive clear instructions on using the injection pen, and your Ro-affiliated provider can offer additional advice.

How much weight can I expect to lose with GLP-1s?

In clinical trials, patients lost 15% of their body weight after 1 year, on average. This is based on the average weight loss in the three 68-week clinical trials of patients without diabetes who reached and maintained a dose of 2.4 mg/week of GLP-1 treatment, along with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.

How quickly do people lose weight with Wegovy?

In the STEP 4 clinical trial, people who combined Wegovy with a healthy diet and exercise lost an average of over 4% of their body weight by eight weeks. Those who reached a steady dose of 2.4 mg per week lost an average of 10.6% of their body weight in the first 20 weeks of treatment—and over 17% of their body weight within 68 weeks. Everyone responds to Wegovy differently, and if prescribed, your Ro-affiliated provider will work with you to get the best results for you. See if Wegovy is right for you here.

Medication is prescribed only if appropriate. Medication is not included in the cost of the Body Program, but don’t worry, our insurance concierge partner will work with your insurance to help get your medication costs covered.

Still have questions? We have answers.

The cost of Wegovy can range depending on your insurance coverage—and we’re here to help!

Our partners will work directly with your insurance provider to help with the process of determining coverage for your GLP-1 medication, which is paid for separately from the Body Program. Ro does not accept insurance for the Body Program, which is cash pay only. At this time, those with any form of government healthcare coverage (including programs such as Medicare, Medicaid or TRICARE), whether primary or secondary, are not eligible for the Ro Body Program. These plans typically do not cover the type of medication the Ro Body Program may prescribe. Unfortunately, this means that those on Medicare or eligible for Medicare cannot join the Ro Body Program.

All medications carry a risk of potential side effects. Wegovy’s side effects are typically mild and often improve within the first few weeks of treatment. When they occur, it’s usually when doses are increased, then tend to improve once a steady dose is reached. Some of the most common side effects include:

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Upset stomach

  • Stomach pains

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhea

  • Heartburn

  • Acid reflux

  • Belching and gas

  • Dizziness

  • Headaches

  • Fatigue

More severe side effects are uncommon but possible. Serious side effects include:

  • Thyroid cancer—The FDA has issued its most serious warning (called a BOXED WARNING) that GLP-1s may be associated with a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma. So far, this side effect has primarily been seen in laboratory studies using rodents, so the risk to humans has not been determined.

  • Pancreatitis

  • Gallbladder disease

  • Rapid heartbeat

  • Severe allergy (hypersensitivity)

  • Low blood sugar

  • Vision problems (diabetic retinopathy)

  • Kidney disease

  • Suicidal thoughts or behaviors

Please see the full Prescribing Information, including the BOXED WARNING, for complete safety information.

We hear all the time that weight loss depends on willpower. And that’s just not true. Obesity is a disease, not a decision. Being overweight is about the biology of your body. There are steps that you can take to put science on your side. And we know how.

There are lots of reasons, but here are three:

  • Trying to make too many big changes all at once.

  • Going on extreme diets that are hard to maintain.

  • Following a cookie-cutter plan that doesn’t understand personal biology.
