Weight Management Program

Maintaining a healthy weight is essential to a long and productive life. PEIA offers PEIA PPB members a weight management program which uses the services of dietitians and exercise professionals. To qualify you must have either a body mass index of 25 or greater, or a waist circumference of 35 inches or more for a woman or 40 inches or more for a man.

Additionally, while there is still no deductible or coinsurance, the member copayment is a flat $20 monthly throughout the length of the program, making it more affordable for couples and/or families who want to attend together.

The PEIA Weight Management Program uses the services of exercise and nutrition professionals in conjunction with professional phone counselors to help you make the necessary lifestyle changes so that you may lose weight and improve your health.

You will receive:
  • Individualized services, including a baseline assessment and periodic follow ups
  • Personal training
  • Phone coaching
  • Access to a participating fitness facility meeting PEIA’s health and safety standards
  • Two years of services so long as you demonstrate progress
