Medicare helps fight obesity

Ending the “upward spiral”

Did you know that 60 percent of people have tried to lose weight in the past and that 50 percent are currently trying to lose? Obviously, they could use a little help. And, apparently, Medicare is stepping up to the plate.

In what came as a surprise to me, Medicare announced recently that it would pay for screenings and preventive services to help people curb obesity and the medical ailments associated with it–primarily heart disease, strokes, and diabetes. They left out cancer, but why nitpick? This is still a huge coup for American healthcare.

The administrator for Medicare admitted that, “obesity is a challenge faced by Americans of all ages, and prevention is crucial for the management and elimination of obesity in our country.”

That’s precisely why I have made it so easy for you to take control and to get off the “upward spiral” with my New Hamptons Health Miracle.

My plan gives you all the information you will ever need to lose weight, and keep it off–and prevent diabetes and any number of other serious (even deadly) health conditions in the process. The tools are all at your fingertips, inside the collection of bonus reports you received when you subscribed to my monthly Logical Health Alternatives print newsletter.

I strongly urge you to take advantage of everything the New Hamptons Health Miracle has to offer…and I urge you to take advantage of the new Medicare benefits, too. (And if you’re not of Medicare age yet, the good news is that once Medicare approves something, most other insurance companies end up doing it, too.)

The new Medicare benefits will include face-to-face counseling every week for a month, then one session every other week for the following five months for people who screen positive for obesity.

If the person loses weight, he or she may continue face-to-face counseling every month for six additional months.

This is exactly the kind of support that’s been missing in the mainstream medical system and I’m thrilled that things are finally taking a step in the right direction.

Of course, I should point out that I read this report online, from the People magazine of newspapers–USA Today–and next to this article were three advertisements for bariatric surgery. Coincidence? You be the judge.
