How the body program works
Tell us about your health
Share your health history and weight loss goals with your Ro-affiliated provider.
In four days
Take a lab test
Your provider will order a metabolic lab test after they have reviewed your health history. You can use your insurance to test at any Quest location (most insurance accepted) or purchase an at-home collection kit through Ro for an additional fee. If you live in a state where Quest is not available, we’ll automatically send you an at-home blood collection kit for no charge. Here’s what you’ll test:
CHOL, HDL, LDL, TRIG: A traditional Lipid Panel that will help us understand your metabolic health.
BUN and CREAT: Kidney function measures to help inform what medication is right for you (if appropriate).
TSH: Thyroid function testing to see if there is a thyroid related issue that could be causing weight challenges.
HbA1c: Used to screen for diabetes and prediabetes, another measure of metabolic health.
If this seems like science jargon, don't worry! We’ll help you make sense of it.
Typically within one week
Connect with a provider
Your Ro-affiliated provider will review your results to see if medication is right for you.
If it is, you’ll begin the Body Program, which includes: access to medication, ongoing provider care, a personal health coach, and a weekly email with healthy lifestyle strategies.
Takes about 2-3 weeks
Get insurance coverage
Our insurance concierge partner connects with your insurance company to help get the cost of medication covered. Here’s how they’ll do it:
Liaise with your insurance: 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.
Explore every option: 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.
Find solutions to get you started: 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.
Go the extra mile to find medication: 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.
Varies by pharmacy
If you move forward with treatment, our partner will go the extra mile to find a pharmacy with medication available.
