Physician-supervised weight-loss programs provide treatment in a clinical setting with a licensed health care professional, such as a medical doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, registered dietitian and/or a psychologist. These programs typically offer services such as nutrition and physical activity counseling and behavioral therapy.

The cost to participate in a physician-supervised weight-loss program varies depending upon the services offered. Health insurance companies may cover some or all of your treatment particularly if you have weight-related health conditions such as heart disease, hypertension or diabetes.

The Initial Consult:
A physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner specializing in obesity treatment provides the initial consultation. The initial consult involves a focused medical evaluation for diseases related to obesity and causative factors, along with a physical examination. In addition, the medical professional will obtain a weight history, which includes past diet attempts, and may conduct a thorough psychological history.

Many patients come to the clinic with undiagnosed diabetes, high cholesterol, thyroid disorders, abnormal liver tests or obstructive sleep apnea. Additional testing may be recommended depending upon the medical history and physical findings.

Yes. Any insurance plan you can buy in your state's Marketplace includes a free obesity screening test. Your health care provider will use your weight and height to find your body mass index, called your BMI. A BMI of 25 or higher is overweight. A BMI of 30 or more is obese.

If you get the screening test and are obese, you'll qualify for free counseling to help you lose weight. You'll get between 12 to 26 sessions.

The type of counseling differs depending on the plan. Some people might get one-on-one counseling in person or on the phone. Others might get counseling in a group or through existing programs, such as Weight Watchers.

Check your plan's summary of benefits to see the details on what's offered.

In most cases. Most employer health plans have to cover obesity screening tests and counseling. Some older plans that were already in place when the Affordable Care Act became law on March 23, 2010, and that haven’t made many changes to their benefits, called grandfathered plans, don't have to offer free screening tests or counseling.
