Insurance Redesign Is Beneficial in Ensuring Use of Childhood Obesity Prevention Services

A new study shows the groundbreaking Healthier Generation Benefit - providing at least four follow-up visits with a primary care provider and at least four visits with a registered dietitian nutritionist per year for children in the 85th percentile or higher of BMI - has succeeded in expanding health care coverage for obesity.

The Academy of Pediatrics, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation have partnered since 2009 in addressing childhood obesity. Researchers from Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health collaborated with the Alliance to evaluate the Healthier Generation Benefit.

"We are excited about the results of the report and look forward to exploring ways to improve this innovative approach to health care delivery," said Victoria Brown, vice president of the Alliance and co-author of the study. "The efforts of everyone involved confirm that a team-based approach among physicians, dietitians, providers, healthcare organizations and families is required to eliminate the childhood obesity crisis."

The study's complete findings, "Designing Insurance to Promote Use of Childhood Obesity Services," are published in the 2013 special edition of The Journal of Obesity titled Childhood Obesity: Today and Tomorrow's Health Challenge.
