Is Ozempic (semaglutide) covered by insurance?
Ozempic® (semaglutide) insurance coverage depends on your insurance plan - whether or not it covers 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, medications like Ozempic, which is FDA-approved for type 2 diabetes, may be covered. To best determine what 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.
