    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    Although the prevalence of obesity among children in the United States is rapidly increasing, third party payer reimbursement for evaluation and management may be limited.

    Results

    The children were on average 10.1 ± 0.3 years old, with a mean body mass index z-score of 4.9 ± 0.2 ; 46% were black, and 65% were female.

    The median reimbursement rate was 11% and varied widely (0% to 100%). Reimbursement rates differed significantly among policy types.
