Patients teetering on the edge of obesity are encouraged to seek early health insurance coverage, rather than waiting until the final days of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

Obesity is an epidemic that costs $1,400 more per person per year to treat than treating a normal-weight person, said the director of the CDC, Dr. Thomas Frieden to USA Today.

Resulting diseases, like diabetes, which is often a result of obesity, costs as much as $6,600 per person more per year.

Patients teetering on the edge of obesity are encouraged to seek early health insurance coverage, rather than waiting until the final days of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act when everyone will have to have coverage.

Patients can try to protect their assets now by getting the coverage they may need later by getting a free health insurance quote from HealthCompare today.
