Obamacare Makes Insurance Companies Address Obesity

Under the Affordable Care Act, President Obama is requiring that health insurance companies help their clients lose weight, USA Today reported. Depending on one’s provider, those who are obese/overweight can be provided telephone weight counseling, health coaches and Weight Watchers referrals. Even better news: Screening and obesity counseling is co-pay free thanks to the new health law.
