As of January 2017, Federal Blue Cross, ASEA – Local 52, IBEW, NEA/Public Education Trust, Premera (select groups), Aetna (select groups), United Healthcare (select groups), CIGNA (select groups), Meritain (select groups), and others HAVE provided coverage. Not all employers who provide insurance include obesity as a covered diagnosis. Insurance quotes are not a guarantee of coverage.

- CBC (Complete Blood Chemistry)
- CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel)
- HgA1c (Hemoglobin A1c)
- TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
- Uric Acid
- Urinalysis (Screening for glucose and protein)
