Weight Management Programs
Managing weight is difficult for many people, but a support system can make it easier. HealthSelect participants can apply to join a weight management program at no additional cost.
Who is eligible
You are eligible if you are:
- an employee, retiree or dependent enrolled in a HealthSelect plan (excluding Medicare-primary participants),
- 18 or older, and
- have a BMI of 23 or higher.
Choose between two programs
Two different online programs are available: Naturally Slim® and Real Appeal®. Key features of each program are listed below. Eligible individuals can participate in one program at any time, but HealthSelect will not cover your participation in both programs at the same time. Your acceptance in either program is not guaranteed.
Naturally Slim focuses on changing your eating habits so you can still eat the foods you love while losing weight and improving your health.
Log on when it’s convenient for a series of ten weekly sessions hosted by nutrition and health specialists.
Real Appeal helps you take small steps that lead to lasting weight loss. The program can be tailored to your goals, preferences and lifestyle.
Participate in weekly online group sessions led by a Transformation Coach.
