Aetna Insurance Coverage for Weight Loss

Aetna offers coverage for weight loss programs and treatments under certain conditions.

Weight loss coverage

Coverage for weight loss varies depending on the specific plan you have, so it is important to review your benefits to see what is covered. However, Aetna typically covers weight loss treatments that are considered medically necessary and prescribed by a healthcare professional. One of the most common weight loss treatments covered by Aetna is bariatric surgery, such as gastric bypass or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. Aetna also covers weight loss medications, such as Phentermine, Qsymia, and Contrave, although the amount of coverage may vary depending on the specific plan. Aetna also offers coverage for weight loss programs that are designed to help you lose weight in a safe and healthy way. These programs may include:

  1. Nutritional counseling: Aetna may cover visits to a registered dietitian or nutritionist who can help you develop a healthy eating plan.
  2. Behavioral counseling: Aetna may cover visits with a mental health professional who can help you address emotional eating and other psychological factors that may be contributing to your weight.
  3. Exercise programs: Aetna may cover visits to a personal trainer or physical therapist who can help you develop an exercise plan that is safe and effective.
  4. Weight loss programs: Aetna may cover participation in a structured weight loss program, such as Weight Watchers or the SlimFast plan.
