If you qualify for weight-loss medication, you are required to first complete an onboarding checklist, which includes submitting lab work and insurance information, completing a detailed health history, and verifying personal information. Participants may provide lab work from the last 12 months or get new lab work that includes a full-panel blood test (A1C, cholesterol, liver functions, thyroid, etc.) as well as blood pressure and heart rate.
