For patients without health insurance or whose health insurance does not cover these services there are two self-pay options:

Option #1: Pay a flat fee of $598.00 for 16 weeks of MD and RD appointments and weekly support groups. This fee does not cover tests, blood work and nutritional supplements which will be billed separately.
Option #2: Pay for appointments at the time of the visit. Please direct the patient to contact Patient Financial Services at 850 Harrison Avenue, Ground Floor (617.638.6157) PRIOR to their scheduled appointment for further details. Your patient will need to fill out the Self Pay Outpatient Form (PDF).

If your patient does not choose the flat fee or self-pay program, and does not have insurance coverage for dietitian visits, we will offer a one-time free dietitian appointment. Your patient will be followed by a nutrition physician specialist for subsequent appointments. The patient is strongly encouraged to join one of our weekly weight management support groups.

We are committed to providing a high level of assistance to our physician colleagues within BMC and outside of the BMC system, as well. Whether for diagnostics, treatment, a single consultation, second opinion or ongoing follow up, our physicians will keep the consulting physician fully informed of the patient's treatment plan and coordinate long term management.
