Background: Nebraska ranks 17th in the nation for obesity rates, with over 35% of its residents having obesity and another 35% having overweight. Now is the time to prioritize obesity care by expanding access to anti-obesity medications and intensive behavioral therapy for Medicaid recipients. These treatment options are effective and FDA-approved, and will allow patients and their healthcare providers additional tools in their journey to improved health. The time to act is now!
