From the LA Times comes this nanny state update.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force urged doctors to identify patients with a body mass index of 30 or more — currently 1 in 3 Americans — and either provide counseling themselves or refer the patient to a program designed to promote weight loss and improve health prospects.
Under the current healthcare law, Medicare and most private insurers would be required to cover the entire cost of weight-loss services that meet or exceed the task force’s standards.
So if I want a Hawaiian vacation to help keep me from consuming too many milkshakes this summer, will Obamacare cover that too?
