Overview of Weight Management Benefit
 
All OEBB medical plans include a weight management benefit. Members enrolled in an OEBB medical plan have access to:
  • Telephone coaching sessions
  • Annual assessment
  • Screenings
  • Educational Resources to keep you on track, and
  • Up to four 13-week Weight Watchers sessions per plan year
The Weight Watchers benefit is available to anyone age 10 and up covered on an OEBB medical plan.
 
You can access the benefit in three different ways - choose the one that's right for you.
  1. You can attend Weight Watchers local meetings in your community when and where it suits you best.
  2. Bring the Weight Watchers experience to your workplace with At Work meetings; where a trained leader facilitates weekly meetings and you benefit from the group support of your co-workers.
  3. You can also access Weight Watchers Online and follow the steps with interactive tools and resources, such as a weight tracker, progress chart, restaurant guide and much more.
You are eligible for four 13-week sessions per plan year (Oct. 1- Sept. 30), but you must provide proof of participation in 10 of the 13 weeks per session to participate in a subsequent session at no cost.
