Real Appeal℠ Providing Employees With a Plan for Lasting Weight Loss

Obesity is a significant health challenge in the United States for employers and their employees. It is estimated that 78.6 million adults in the United States are obese and the number continues to grow. Further, obesity negatively impacts employers in the areas of productivity, health care costs and employee health.

UnitedHealthcare’s Real Appeal is working to address this substantial health challenge, with tools and support to help employees lose weight and prevent weight-related health conditions. For fully insured employers (with more than 100 employees), Real Appeal is available at no additional cost to employees as part of their UnitedHealthcare benefits plan. Self-funded employers can choose whether to include Real Appeal as an in-network preventive medical service.

Real Appeal includes:

  • A personalized transformation coach for an entire year to guide participants through the program, step by step, customizing it to fit their needs, personal preferences, goals and medical history.
  • 24/7 online support and mobile app to help employees stay accountable to goals.
  • A Success Kit with all the gadgets participants need to help kick-start their weight loss and keep them going strong.
