Is OPTIFAST right for you?
Calculating the "costs" is more than just dollars and cents. In 2010, obesity-related medical costs were estimated to be $73.1 billion. Obesity costs include:
$12.8 billion annually in sick-leave
$30 billion annually due to loss in productivity
Individuals with a BMI greater than 35 represent 37 percent of the obese population but are responsible for 61 percent of excess healthcare costs.
On average, people who are considered obese pay $1,429 (42 percent) more in healthcare costs than healthy-weight individuals.
