HealthyWomen’s Congressional Briefing, Obesity: The Cost of No Coverage

Learn why access to and coverage for obesity treatments is so critical!

July 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Obesity is a chronic disease that increases risk of other serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and certain cancers. With 4 out of 10 American adults living with obesity, access to and insurance coverage for treatment options are essential.

The Treat and Reduce Obesity Act (TROA) was reintroduced this Congress with the goal of expanding Medicare coverage to include screening for and treatment of obesity, as well as coverage of FDA-approved medications for chronic weight management. Similar legislation is being introduced at the state level as well.

Learn about the real-world impacts, including the economic toll, that a lack of obesity treatment coverage has on women.
