The Price is Right: Stop Getting Overcharged for Healthcare


Stop Getting Overcharged for Healthcare

Ever notice how prices aren’t listed in healthcare? And when they are they never seem to match the bill that comes later. There’s a reason for that: it’s mostly made up. Medical billing is an absolute mess: a nightmare of random upcharges, overcharges, and fees. If you ever get a large bill from a hospital or clinic, dispute it and watch it magically become less when you request an itemized bill.



Healthcare costs are crazy! We only charge $50 a month or less and don’t upcharge meds for profit; our weight loss competitors do. We’re a small shop with no shareholders and our business owner (me) is the one you talk to and prescribes your meds. Your $50 gets you all the healthcare we can do online including diagnosis, treatment, and prescriptions for medication.


Weight loss meds we prescribe cost anywhere from around $90 a month to $200 a month because we prescribe them directly from the pharmacy. Other places charge $200-400+ a month. Mental healthcare meds generally cost even less (about $5-50/month, also insurance covers them most of the time). With c.a.l.m. you will get meds directly from the pharmacy to keep prices as low as they get. My competitors disguise their upcharge as simplicity in their all-in-one pricing such as: “$280/month for doctor advice and meds!” What they really mean is “$90 for the medicine, $190 for shareholders! 😉” Yeah. No thanks.
