A new law may be passed that obese adults should seek counseling in order to get approved for health care. June 28, 2012
To prevent a growing health crisis in America, a federal health advisory panel recommended that all obese adults seek intensive counseling to help them lose weight before applying for health care coverage. These counseling charges will be covered under the currently law but that could change if a new law is passed by President Obama.
"The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force urged doctors to identify patients with a body mass index of 30 or more, currently 1 in 3 Americans and either provide counseling themselves or refer the patient to a program designed to promote weight loss and improve health prospects.
Under the current healthcare law, Medicare and most private insurers would be required to cover the entire cost of weight-loss services that meet or exceed the task force’s standards."
"That could all change Thursday, when the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule on the constitutionality of President Obama’s healthcare law, which requires adoption of certain recommendations from the task force, such as this one on obesity. Few private health insurers now reimburse physicians for weight-loss counseling or pay for programs that patients seek out on their own. A growing number, in fact, charge obese patients more for coverage, a policy that some public health officials have denounced as punitive and ineffective."
