Is Ozempic (semaglutide) covered by insurance?

Whether insurance covers semaglutide in the form of Ozempic®, which is FDA-approved for type 2 diabetes, depends on your insurance plan. Insurance plans have varying policies on whether or not they cover certain medications and under what circumstances medications are covered. Note that medication coverage is considered part of the insurance plan benefits. While weight loss medications are often not covered by insurance companies, plans with Ozempic covered by insurance may be more common. To best determine if Ozempic is covered by insurance and what other medications are covered by your plan, you can review your plan’s drug formulary, which is a list of generic and brand name prescription drugs that are covered by your prescription drug plan.
