Obesity Medicine

Please do not make obesity medicine any harder to treat! As a medical assistant working in this field and someone who has struggled with being obese most of my life, I know the hardships faced by not only the patients who are trying to receive help, but also the staff in the medical offices who are trying to help our patients live healthier lives. Please do not make the prior authorization process for these medications any more difficult to complete and be approved than they already are!
