Healthier Generation Benefit
Childhood obesity affects our country’s healthcare system. The industry spends $61 billion annually to treat obesity-related ailments. As a solution, we are engaging insurers and employers to offer healthcare benefits for the prevention and treatment of childhood obesity. This benefit provides eligible children with access to at least four follow up visits with his or her primary care provider and at least four visits with a registered dietitian per year. Your company can offer the Healthier Generation Benefit and become part of the movement to support childhood health.
