FAQ About Insurance, HSA, FSA, Health Insurance Reimbursement

HERE ARE SOME FAQS THAT MAY ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

Are Ideal Weight-Total Well Coach fees reimbursed by my insurance company?

It depends. Some insurance companies may reimburse for weight loss programs. Beginning January 2014, the Affordable Care Act requires insurance plans to reimburse for weight loss programs that offer counseling (Joyce Strong, RN, BSN, Certified Wellcoach, Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist weight loss programs all include evidence-based, behavioral-based weight loss counseling). Check with your health insurance plan administrator for details. Your doctor must first complete and sign the Letter of Medical Necessity. Once completed, submit the letter with your program receipt to your insurance provider following their normal process for reimbursement.

DOWNLOAD THE LETTER OF MEDICAL NECESSITY

How do I know if Ideal Weight-Total Well Coach qualifies for reimbursement under my health insurance plan?

You should check FIRST with your health insurance plan to see if weight loss counseling or programs are eligible for reimbursement. If so (or even if it is not clear), ask your doctor to complete the Letter of Medical Necessity. Once completed, submit the letter with your program receipt to your insurance provider following their normal process for reimbursement.

Is the Ideal Weight-Total Well Coach weight loss programs reimbursed by my Flexible Spending Account (FSA), Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), or Health Savings Account (HSA)?

Some plans reimburse for weight loss programs. Check FIRST with your plan and if so (or if it is unclear) ask your doctor to complete the Letter of Medical Necessity. Once completed, submit the letter with your program receipt to your insurance provider following their normal process for reimbursement.

Will Ideal Weight-Total Well Coach submit my paperwork for me?

No. Ideal Weight-Total Well Coach will not submit your paperwork and will not know that you have requested reimbursement under any plan unless you choose to share that information.

Is the nutritional food and supplements recommended by and included in weight loss programs at Ideal Weight-Total Well Coach reimbursed under insurance plans, FSAs, HRAs, or HSAs?

It depends. Some programs will reimburse for special diet food and/or supplements based on a medical condition.

Pharma GABA: A Natural Way to Attain a Calm Focus

Pharma GABA:  A Natural Way to Attain a Calm Focus

Pharma GABAA natural way to attain a calm focus 

PharmaGABA is naturally-sourced, bioidentical GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid).  It is made via a process where the amino acid glutamic acid (glutamate) is fermented using Lactobacillus hilgardii, the beneficial bacteria also used to ferment many foods including the vegetables in kimchi, the national dish of Korea.  PharmaGABA™ provides 200 mg of GABA per serving (two tablets).  Its chewable tablet delivery allows for rapid and efficient absorption and assimilation.  As a result, benefits are felt very quickly.

What is GABA?
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a naturally occurring amino acid in the brain and is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS).  Being an inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA blocks nerve impulses, slowing down the activity of nerve cells and preventing them from over-firing.  Frequent over-firing of brain cells can lead to cell death, meaning that stress can actually kill brain cells.  Keeping GABA levels optimal can help prevent this. Thus, GABA serves as a critical calming agent for the body, helping to combat stress and anxiety.

The brain synthesizes GABA from glutamate, an excitatory neurotransmitter. These two neurotransmitters work together in a beautifully orchestrated system of checks and balances. Neurotransmitters are the brain’s basic components of communication, and when there is a breakdown in this communication system, brain function becomes affected.  In stressful situations, GABA levels in the body can decrease, and this delicate system becomes out of balance.   In a study on humans, prefrontal brain GABA levels decreased by 18% after acute psychological stress, specifically threat of shock (Hasler, G, et al, Am J Psychiatry, 2010).  Thus, supplementation with PharmaGABA™, a natural, bioidentical GABA, may be of benefit in helping to cope with stressful situations, whether they arise from daily or extreme stress.

PharmaGABA may be helpful for*

  • Anxiety/Agitation
  • Depression
  • Cravings and Addictions (such as drugs, alcohol)
  • Cigarette smokers who are trying to quit  – may help decrease addiction-associated anxiety
  • Immune Function – helping to combat stress’s impact on immunosupression
  • Focus, Mental Clarity, Concentration – beneficial in academics, for improving learning capacity
  • Sports Performance – an increase in the ability to relax and focus may lead to a greater level of concentration on performance and may help reduce pre-competition nervousness
  • Sleep – may help reduce stress-induced insomnia
  • Hypertension
