It is estimated that around 30 percent of all Medicare recipients are obese, which can lead to chronic diseases such as diabetes or heart disease. Maybe you or someone you know is one of these individuals who have struggled with weight issues.
It can be extremely challenging and expensive to lose weight in a healthy manner. In order to lower obesity amongst seniors Medicare now offers intensive counseling for Medicare patients
free of charge. All individuals with Medicare who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more are covered. Patients who lose a minimum of 6.6 pounds during the first 6 months will be eligible for further coverage of personal counseling for an additional 6 months, once a week.
