Bari-Med M.D. is a Telemedicine Medical Weight Loss Practice that serves all of Virginia, and the Washington D.C., & Maryland area. We take a Concerige Medicine approach to medical weight loss.  All Telemedicine visits are with Dr. McClendon M.D. a Board- Certified Bariatric Medicine Physician.  Dr McClendon personalizes a medical weight loss regimen for each patient to include safe weight loss medications such as Phentermine, Mounjaro, Ozempic/Wegovy, and Qsymia and more, to achieve successful long-term weight loss, in addition to motivational interviewing and a discussion of the importance of diet & exercise. Since we are a physician supervised medical weight loss practice, we accept insurances in addition to offering affordable self-pay pricing.


Medical Weight Loss Program

For an overview of the Medical Weight Loss Program, please click here:

Visits are billed to insurance just as they would when you see a Specialist Physician for a medical condition. You would be responsible for any insurance copays if applicable.

We accept the following insurances:

Anthem/ Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS, including FEP)
Certain Tricare Prime Plans
Multiplan (PHCS)

If you don’t have one of these insurances– no problem!  You would be considered “Self Pay” and would pay out of pocket for the visits.

New Patient Self Pay Telemedicine Visit: $250
Established Patient Self Pay Telemedicine Visit: $130

We are not a participating provider/ do not accept Medicare or Medicaid.
