Summary
"About one-third of U.S. adults1 and approximately 17% of children and adolescents are obese (a body mass index or BMI over 30). Employers must act now to mitigate the cause for overwhelming health care costs and loss of productivity associated with obesity. This Action Brief highlights the consequences of obesity; how health plans are responding to the epidemic as demonstrated through eValue8--resource used by purchasers to track health plan performance--and actions employers can take to improve the health and well-being of their workforce."
