AMA Obesity Classification & Insurance Coverage

Hello Everyone!

 We have received several emails asking about the new AMA reclassification of obesity as a disease and how this will affect health insurance coverage for obesity treatment. We expect it to have a favorable impact on health care coverage, but it will vary by plan and insurance provider as well as by state. An Associated Press article in our Special Edition Weekly Digest (June 21, 2013) goes into more depth on this topic. Here is the direct link:

My mother is thinking about getting some weight loss surgery in Odessa TX. Do you have any tips or suggestions for her? Thanks for the post.
