Insurance greatly varies in the terms of the services that they cover and the amount of reimbursement or discount that they provide for a covered service. There are many insurance companies who offer good-health incentives to their clients. These often provide discounts on insurance premiums to those who improve or maintain a healthy lifestyle. Different types of weight loss programs are covered under insurance policies, often providing discounts to premiums or paying for a percentage of an enrollment fee or the service that is being offered by the program.
The following are just some of many weight loss programs that may be covered by your insurance and provide the following discounts:
1. Coverage of 50% off the cost of a program. The programs that receive this type of coverage are customized for each client and focuses on nutrition, diet and exercise to make lifestyle changes.
2. Discounts when joining a program. These are given when you join a program that provides gourmet foods that are delivered to your door and are designed for men, women and diabetics.
3. A discount on the membership of a program. This discount is sometimes offered on many different dieting services and products that help in losing weight and maintaining your proper weight.
4. Coverage of part of the cost of a program. The programs that have part of the cost covered by insurance are typically supplement programs and liquid diets that are medically supervised.
Weight loss programs that are covered by an insurance company are part of their health incentive programs of the company. It is important to contact your insurance company to find out which programs are covered because there are many different stipulations as to discounts and reimbursements. Some changes to your policy may be necessary for the insurance company to be able to pay for any type of program.
