Weight Management Care Value:
Winning the Losing Battle

Obesity has become such a prevalent chronic illness, the CDC now considers it a national epidemic. And by 2030, an estimated 50% of the U.S. population will be considered obese.1 Plans and members are in urgent need of a solution that not only recognizes obesity as a chronic illness, but also provides the tools and support to enable better health. With the right solution, the obesity battle can be treated, managed and even won.

Obesity comorbidities can account for more than $45,000 per patient annually.2

The Weight Management Care Value program delivers a combination of clinically appropriate therapy and tailored support to give patients their best chance of winning against the losing battle. By providing access to anti-obesity medications to the people who need them the most, plans can avoid devastating downstream obesity-related medical costs. And through program-exclusive discounts and value-based strategies, Weight Management Care Value makes anti-obesity medications more affordable.

We’re excited to offer SafeGuardRx solutions as Evernorth, leveraging the specialized clinical model and value-based contracting strategies from Express Scripts.
