All Kids Should Be Screened for Obesity

Earlier this week, an influential group of experts in preventive care
affirmed that children age 6 and older should be screened for obesity and
referred to intensive treatment when necessary.

.

While the Affordable Care Act requires that nearly all plans cover such
treatment, most kids dont have access to programs featuring exercise,
nutrition and counseling, according to an editorial published in JAMA
Internal Medicine.

.

After rising for three decades, obesity rates for children and adolescents
have leveled off in recent years. Still, nearly a third of kids are
overweight, and 17 percent meet the standard for obesity, meaning that for
their age and sex they have a body mass index (weight measured in
kilograms divided by height measured in meters squared) that is in the
95th percentile or higher.

.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, a nonpartisan group of medical
experts that issues recommendations on preventive care, evaluated the
evidence related to screening and treating children and adolescents for
obesity. Based on that analysis, this week the group affirmed its 2010
recommendation.

.

Under the ACA, preventive care recommended by the task force must be
covered by nearly all health plans without making consumers pay for it
out-of-pocket. But despite the task forces recommendation, insurance
coverage is spotty, said Dr. Jason Block, associate director of the
Division of Chronic Disease Research Across the Lifecourse at Harvard
Medical School, who co-authored an editorial about the new guidelines.

.

Even when plans cover obesity treatment, they may not pay for a range of
services.
