How Ro helps you lose weight

We’re pushing every day to get medication to our patients faster. Here’s a quick rundown: It takes 4-6 weeks to start if you’re not using insurance. This timing includes lab testing. If you’d like to use your insurance, it can take an additional 2-3 weeks to determine coverage. We’ll handle the paperwork and work hard to get that coverage for you.

Answer health questions and complete your online visit

Share your health history and weight loss goals with us online to get started.

A Ro-affiliated provider will review your answers and get back to you within a few days.

If you’re a good fit for the program, your provider will order a metabolic lab test. The test will help you understand how your body’s working right now. 

You can take your test at any Quest location or purchase an at-home blood collection kit through Ro for an additional cost.

If you live in a state where Quest is not available, we’ll automatically send you an at-home collection kit for no charge.

After reviewing your results, your provider will determine if you’re eligible for medication. If you are, they’ll tailor a program with prescription treatment best suited to your unique biology.

If you'd like to try to use insurance, our concierge partner connects with your insurance company to help get the cost of medication covered. If coverage is denied, we'll help you understand your options, including paying cash.

Ongoing care $145/mo

If you're prescribed compounded semaglutide, our partner pharmacy will ship your medication in 1-4 days. If you're prescribed a branded GLP-1 medication, you'll get your prescription from your preferred pharmacy.

You’ll have everything you need during treatment, including on-demand provider access via video or messaging, medication management, and ongoing refill support.

Ozempic 101

What is Ozempic?

Ozempic 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.

Ozempic is FDA-approved for the management of certain symptoms and risks of type 2 diabetes.


How does Ozempic work?

Ozempic works by slowing the digestion process, which can help you to feel full for longer. Ozempic, like other GLP-1 receptor agonists, acts like a hormone your body naturally makes to regulate blood sugar and may help support weight loss.


Do you prescribe Ozempic for weight loss?

Ozempic is not FDA-approved for weight loss. Ro-affiliated healthcare professionals have the discretion to prescribe a medication off-label if they believe it is an appropriate course of treatment for a particular patient.

How can Ozempic help with weight loss? 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.

What is Ozempic’s dosing?

Ozempic 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, the lowest dose of Ozempic is 0.25 mg once a week and the maximum dose is 2.0 mg once a week.


How do you take Ozempic?

Ozempic comes in a prefilled injection pen that contains multiple doses. If prescribed, you (or someone in your household) will select the prescribed dose, then administer the injection under the skin of your stomach, thigh, or arm once a week.

While a routine injection may sound intimidating, the Ozempic 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.


Will my insurance cover the cost of Ozempic?

How to get Ozempic covered by insurance—it’s a very important question! Well, you can consider us your insurance concierge.

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, Medicare Supplement Plans, Medicaid or TRICARE), whether primary or secondary coverage are not eligible for the Body Program. These plans typically do not cover the type of medication the Body Program may prescribe. Unfortunately, this means that those on Medicare or eligible for Medicare cannot join the Body Program. Federal employees who receive their health insurance through the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHB) may participate in the Body Program.
