Background: The Treat and Reduce Obesity Act (TROA) is bipartisan legislation that provides Medicare beneficiaries with access to safe, effective, and life-saving treatments. The bill aims to effectively treat and reduce obesity in older Americans by enhancing Medicare beneficiaries’ access to healthcare providers that are best suited to provide intensive behavioral therapy (IBT) and by allowing Medicare Part D to cover Food & Drug Administration (FDA)-approved obesity medications.
