Hi Liz! first of all, congratulations on your success. i can imagine how amazing you must feel. I just have a quick question if you dont mind. Today i went to my dr. at Kaiser, Also in california, and she recommended to me the optifast program and said it would work best for me. I am so excited about it, and would love to start right away, but i see how pricey it can be. My question is, Does our insurance cover any of it? and how much out of pocket should i be expecting? this is the scary part for me. If you can please email me any info you can offer on this program through kaiser, mostly cost information. since im never on this sight im worried i wont get your response. Keep up the great work!!! and thanks in advance for your helpful information.
