Effective August 10, 2017 we will no longer be accepting any HMO insurances. Please check our calendar for schedule changes. 


Unlike other weight loss programs, we do not hide our costs, nor will we ever require any long-term contracts.

Because our programs use a high protein meal replacement as your complete or main source of nutrition and because the amount of meal replacements required daily varies patient-to-patient, meal replacement costs may vary. The amount of meal replacements is medically determined for each patient and is a requirement while on the diet. That said, most patients will pay only between $14.50 and $20 per day for meal replacements! Keep in mind this is your total source of nutrition, replacing your current food costs.

Program costs vary a great deal depending on your health provider, your health plan, regular co-pay, etc. We are currently contracted as in-network for the following insurers:

  • Medicare
  • Most PPOs
  • We are NOT contracted with Medi-Cal or HMO's

Many of our patients contribute co-pay plus the affordable cost of food. Patients are also able to use their Flexible Spending Accounts as well as Health Savings Accounts toward their program fees since our program is medically supervised.

If you don’t see your insurance company’s name on this list, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t be covered. The best thing to do is call 530-273-9992 to find out what benefit coverage your insurance plan offers and to get a precise weekly or monthly breakdown on costs.

In comparing Sierra Weight Loss programs to other popular alternatives (Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, South Beach Diet or Nutri Systems, for example), you will find that our rates are often less expensive than any other meal-substitution programs. This is astonishing when you consider that:

  1. We’re the only major meal-provided program that is medically supervised
  2. Our clients benefit from the fastest rate of weight loss (2-4 lbs per week)
  3. We have 5 times better long term results
  4. We provide a comprehensive program with intensive behavioral support and training
  5. We are the only area program recognized by major California Health Insurers.
