    I'm sure an admin can confirm but this isn't a certified support group, in the way that insurance prefers to approve for surgery, if that is what you mean through your question? Typically, they require a local in person support group with some type of certified individual (Doc/RN/Nutritionist) that trains, teaches and supports individuals going through WLS. This is basically a group where individuals can discuss, encourage, and support one another based on their experiences while on their weight loss journey.
