Sounds good to me. If your BMI is high, you will be able to access wellness counselors, health coaches, even Weight Watchers Inc. through Obamacare, perhaps with no co-pay.

Another nice part of this obviously needed thing in modern America – there should be plenty of competition. See, how they address obesity is something that the insurance providers get to decide, perhaps based on regionalism and demographics.

If it all works we will be able to shop in our state’s exchange for a plan that fits us based on various health categories such as obesity. And since one size definitely doesn’t fit all when it comes to bodies and our problems, this could deliver better quality care.
