Thank you to all the ICAAP members who participated in the survey regarding Medicaid coverage and reimbursement of obesity-related services. A summary of the survey results, as published in the Fall 2012 edition of Illinois Pediatrician, is available for download via the link below. These results will be utilized to advocate for more complete coverage and reimbursement and have shaped the development of a Maintenance of Certification (MOC) project and physician education modules.
ICAAP’s Obesity Prevention Initiatives would also like to congratulate the survey-takers who won our Xbox Prize Pack giveaway, Dr. Marealita Pierce of Pierce Pediatrics Associates and Dr. Mariana Glusman of Children’s Memorial-Uptown. Drs. Pierce and Glusman will be utilizing the Xbox 360 system, its Kinect motion-sensor accessory, and an assortment of fitness-related game titles in their practices to promote healthy activity and physical fitness for their patients.
