WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Overweight and obesity are both labels for weight ranges greater than what’s generally considered healthy for a given height. The terms also identify ranges shown to increase the likelihood of certain diseases and other health problems. Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death.
Through this program, we encourage you to look at both DIET and EXERCISE routines. Research has shown that one without the other is often unsuccessful when it comes to achieving healthy weight goals.
To participate in the Weight Management Program, you must have:
MNPS Cigna insurance for certificated teachers
A body mass index (BMI) of at least 25
Through the program, we will reimburse 50% of the cost of:
Membership fees at an approved weight management program/organization (see list below)
– Maximum of $1,650 lifetime reimbursement per person
– Retrospective reimbursement limited to 3 months prior to follow-up visit
One-on-one nutritional counseling by a registered dietician/nutritionist who participates in the MNPS Cigna network
The following nutritional counseling/health coaching options are no cost under your MNPS Cigna plan:
Vanderbilt at MNPS Health Coach Bobbi Nickel (call 615-259-8755 for an appointment)
Onsite Cigna Health Coach Samantha Simpson (call 703-718-1576 or email Samantha.Simpson@evernorth.com for an in-person or telephonic appointment)
Cigna Health Coach (call 1-877-459-9896 for a telephonic appointment)
Participants must attend a follow-up visit at the MNPS Health Care Centers a minimum of every 3 months and bring approved weight management program receipts (required for reimbursement).
Reimbursement requests are submitted to Cigna quarterly (in March, June, September and December) on the last business day of the quarter. You should receive reimbursement in the mail within 4 weeks of this request.
