Prescribe FIT

Prescribe FIT

Prescribe FIT is a proven lifestyle program—not a fad diet or short-lived workout plan—that guides orthopedic patients to improve their health at home by focusing on the root causes of their musculoskeletal (MSK) pain and/or arthritic conditions.  

With small changes to nutrition, physical activity, and lifestyle, Prescribe FIT helps patients decrease weight, reduce pain, improve mobility, and better prepare for and recover from surgery. 

Prescribe FIT is also covered by insurance through Medicare, Medicaid, and most commercial insurance carriers. Our team will help you confirm your benefits eligibility and financial responsibility prior to enrollment.

 

How it works: 

  1. Once enrolled, patients are matched with a dedicated Care Coach from Prescribe FIT who will call weekly to offer personalized support and recommendations that promote healthy lifestyle changes.
  2. Each week, patients will set goals to gradually increase their physical activity, as well as learn about healthier eating. 
  3. Patients will be provided with a Bluetooth scale that pairs with a smart device to send daily body weight readings to their orthopedic physician.
