ReNew You Weight Management Program

Why Choose the ReNew You Weight Management Program?

Excessive weight and obesity is a key medical concern. If not taken seriously, severe health problems may occur such as diabetes, hypertension, stroke and heart disease. ReNew You not only helps prevent these conditions, but the weight loss program is also customized to your lifestyle goals.

We realize your weight loss journey is personal. And we would like to help you.

Together with our expert clinicians – including a nurse practitioner, registered dietitian, behavior health therapist, and physical therapist – you can achieve your weight loss goals.

Our intense weight loss approach understands that weight loss is not just “eat less and exercise more”.

Our program offers medical support, nutrition, behavior counseling, and activity. And we don’t stop offering support after the program is over! The ReNew You team personalizes their approach to address what is important to you.

It takes commitment – no doubt! But we are here to support you and keep you on track every step of the way!

To join our ReNew You program, please call 262-785-2319 or register for an upcoming, free informational session.

Program Fees & Insurance

The ReNew You program fee is $2,200.

Insurance

Insurance companies are very specific regarding qualifications and requirements for medically supervised weight loss. We encourage you to check with your insurance provider to see if this program is covered or reimbursable.

If you’re a Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare associate with UMR insurance, the entire cost of the ReNew You program will be reimbursed if all components of the program are completed.

Bariatric Surgery

The 6-month medically supervised ReNew You program meets insurance requirements for those interested in pursuing bariatric surgery; however, we encourage you to check with your insurance provider to confirm coverage.
