Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming has updated procedure codes related to obesity coverage and preventive benefits. Preventive diet, behavioral, and medical counseling are permitted for obesity under the US Preventive Service Task Force recommendations. These standard preventive benefits apply to all fully insured lines of business but can vary for self-funded groups.
