U.S. Employee Wellness Programs and Access to Obesity Treatment in Employer-Sponsored Health Insurance
American Journal of Managed CareLink to more items from this source
Nov. 16, 2015

"Respondents were asked whether their employer [1] requires participation in a wellness program to receive full health benefits, [2] sets goals for weight and other health indicators, and [3] includes coverage for evidence-based obesity treatment in their health plan.... The study found 16% of employers required participation in wellness programs to receive full health benefits. Most programs set targets for weight and related health indicators, but they did not typically provide coverage for evidence-based obesity treatments."
