Duke Diet & Fitness Center Prices and Fees

The Duke Diet & Fitness Center program is an extensive health care encounter, which is outside the scope of what most insurance providers consider traditional levels of medical services, and is therefore not usually covered by insurance.

The cost of a weight-loss program may be tax deductible as a medical expense when prescribed by your physician to treat obesity. Check with your tax professional or visit www.irs.gov for additional information.

Medical savings accounts, flexible spending accounts, and health reimbursement arrangements may also be used for reimbursement of obesity treatment expenses based on your doctor’s recommendation.

Consult with your tax advisor to determine if the fees are deductible.

Specialty consultations for evaluations and services beyond those available at the Duke Diet & Fitness Center may be available at the clients' expense. Clients who would like specialty appointments are encouraged to notify us at least two months in advance of their visit to allow sufficient time for scheduling.

Fees

These rates apply to new clients and those who have not participated in a Diet & Fitness Center program for more than 10 years.  

PLEASE NOTE: IEP participants may complete a second "new client" week within one year of their discharge date to be eligible for the Graduate Program.
