Support the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act:
The bipartisan, bicameral Treat and Reduce Obesity Act (H.R.1577, S.596) has been reintroduced for the 117th Congress. TROA would allow RDNs to independently provide intensive behavioral therapy for obesity within Medicare Part B and would improve access to anti-obesity medications in Medicare Part D. Urge your members of Congress to support this bill to improve patient outcomes, enhance health care access and reduce health care costs.
