Weight Reduction through Participation in a Weight Watchers® Program

Molina Healthcare of Texas will enroll interested and eligible Members aged 15 and older in a local Weight Watchers® program and provide vouchers for five consecutive weeks of program attendance. The initial mailing to the Member, with the vouchers, will include fact sheets about the program and suggestions for getting started with an exercise regimen; these materials are in addition to those that will be provided at the Weight Watchers® program meetings. Within two months of issuing the initial vouchers a MHT health educator will contact the Member to assess their success and commitment to the program. If the Member is fully participating in the program, the educator will issue vouchers for an additional five weeks of program attendance. Eligible Members will be allowed a maximum of ten vouchers.
