    If it's any help I have blue cross blue shield ppo. They said supplements (shakes) are considered food so not covered. I count all that stuff as part of the sleeve expense.

    I just buy my shakes at Costco. No insurance coverage, though that would be cool!

    You'll be saving money on food.
