Massachusetts-Based Insurer Changes Policy for Those Affected by Morbid Obesity

In response to advocacy efforts, TUFTS Health Plan has revised their policies regarding weight-loss surgery. The revised policy restores patient choice in surgery type and reduces the duration of pre-operative dietary counseling.

The OAC would like to thank Dr. Scott Shikora and his coalition of Massachusetts-based bariatric surgeons for their assistance as well as all of you who “Raised Your Voice” and made a difference.
