The Problem: $147 Billion Spent on Obesity Management 

More than one-third of US adults are obese. Often caused by unhealthy habits and lack of exercise, obesity is a direct cause of costly and often deadly chronic conditions—including diabetes, coronary heart disease, hypertension and cancer. The cost of managing obesity (and its associated conditions) is only one factor impacting employers across the country. Workforce safety, absenteeism, presenteeism, disability and morale, as well as corporate innovation often suffer the consequences. Verisk Health provides employers and their health plans and consultants the risk management insight to proactively identify wellness issues and put the right strategies in place that prevent or slow progression of costly disease. Source: CDC
