No we do not. Often, HSAs and FSAs can be used to pay for membership fees. Check with your HSA and FSA carriers to see if this applies to you!
Who is eligible to join the clinic?
We are accepting patients 18 years and over who live in Illinois or Indiana. We are not at this time accepting medicare patients. While majority of our services are Telehealth, a select few patients that live locally can be seen for physician appointments in our Lincolnwood IL clinic location.
Is The Rentea Metabolic Clinic a primary care clinic? Is it an insurance plan?
No, we do not provide primary care, only specialty obesity medicine. In fact, to join the clinic we need to know who your primary care physician is so that we can make sure they are involved in your plan of care. We do not accept insurance.
Why join a direct care clinic like ours?
Direct care clinics offers an innovate alternative payment model that improves your access to your physician for a flat monthly fee. Instead of being limited by insurance, both you and Dr.Rentea are able to spend increased time focusing on your needs and goals. You don't need to worry about not being able to get an appointment for months on end, and not hearing back from messages for days. We have eliminated these problems for you. And no worries about insurance denying a claim.
What is the philosophy of this clinic?
We take a dual evidenced based approach that incorporates obesity medicine and behavioral wellness. We take a highly individualized approach to every patient.
Do you physicians specialize in obesity medicine?
All of our physicians are obesity medicine board certified (ABOM).
Do your registered dietitians have experience in weight loss?
Yes, they all have training in this area. Our Registered Dietitians take a whole food first approach (i.e. reducing processed food) to complement our obesity medicine physicians approach.
Do you prescribe weight loss medication?
Anti-obesity medications are prescribed and managed as clinically appropriate. We try to get the medications covered through your insurance but are not able to guarantee that they will be covered.
