The Affordable Care Act includes provisions that require insurers to pay for coverage of obesity treatments that can include expensive procedures such as gastric bypass surgery as well as counseling. An article in USA today by Nanci Hellmich that was published on July 4, 2013 entitled "Obamacare requires most insurers to tackle obesity" outlines the changes that were made when the Affordable Care Act was passed. According to the article, before the health care law was implemented, there were already insurance companies that were covering weight loss interventions that included counseling, wellness programs, as well as covering some bariatric surgery including gastric bypass surgery.

According to the article, the Affordable Care Act requires that insurers cover treatments for obesity, including gastric bypass surgery in some cases, without having the patients pay any out of picket costs. The article says that the insurance companies vary in the coverage that they will provide in compliance with this requirement. Many of them are planning to provide counseling for patients whose physicians find that they meet the definition of obesity, according to the article. It also goes on to discuss the financial impact of obesity on health care costs, saying that patients who are obese cost $1400 more per year to treat than patients who are not affected by obesity.

The requirements that insurers cover obesity surgery are only the latest example of the growing recognition of the harms that can be caused by obesity. As the article states, the American Medical Association recently decided that it was going to recognize that obesity is a disease.

Even as the Affordable Care Act requires insurance companies to provide coverage that can extend in some cases even to gastric bypass surgery, it is important to recognize that alternatives do exist.
