Meet the My Healthy Weight Initiative

My Healthy Weight is the first-ever collective insurance initiative providing obesity prevention and treatment for individuals of all ages. With more than one in three U.S. adults overweight or living with obesity, this first-ever collaboration is taking serious action to tackle one of America’s most challenging and costly public health concerns. Each year, obesity care costs nearly $210 billion to the nation’s health care system.

Under the My Healthy Weight initiative:

  • Individuals with a BMI of 30 or higher will have access to at least 12 visits a year with a healthcare professional to support healthy weight.
  • Individuals with a BMI of 25 or higher and specific cardiovascular health risks and children with at-risk BMIs will be offered visits with healthcare professionals.
  • Eligible individuals will also have access to community-based programs that have a proven ability to support healthy weight in adults or children.
