Obesity coverage

Obesity is a major health concern in the United States and is linked to a number of health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. Weight loss can help improve these conditions and reduce the risk of developing new ones. However, weight loss can be a difficult journey, and many people struggle to achieve and maintain their weight loss goals.

Insurance coverage for weight loss programs and bariatric surgery can be a valuable tool for individuals seeking to lose weight and improve their health. Highmark BCBS affiliates offer several insurance plans that provide coverage for weight loss programs and bariatric surgery.

What is covered?

  • Coverage for weight loss programs typically includes visits with a registered dietitian and other medical professionals who can provide guidance and support for weight loss. Some plans may also cover meal replacement products, weight loss medication, and behavioral counseling.
  • Coverage for bariatric surgery typically includes procedures such as gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. These procedures can be effective in helping individuals achieve significant weight loss and improve their health.
  • To determine eligibility for coverage for weight loss programs and bariatric surgery, individuals should check their specific insurance plan and consult with their healthcare provider. In some cases, prior authorization may be required for coverage.
