It’s not often that you here of a health insurance plan that pays for health products, but that is the case for a woman in Minnesota. I’m not talking about prescription drugs that one needs for certain ailments, I’m talking about a health fitness plan the lady joined and her health insurance pays for health products.

The health fitness program that the woman joined is called the “Body by ViSalus Fitness Challenge.” The challenge focuses on several different things such as losing weight, building lean muscle or just becoming more fitness focused among other things. The nutritional products that are offered through ViSalus contain nutrients including whey protein which is extremely good for the body and has no known side affects and can help prevent certain heart and liver diseases among other healthy benefits.

The challenge and the products that Body by ViSalus offers work so good that an average of one thousand new people every day are joining the Body by ViSalus challenge. Famous actors/actresses and pro athletes have joined the challenge and other health and diet companies are recommending the Body by ViSalus products. If that wasn’t a big enough endorsement itself, now there is at least one health insurance company that is paying for the health products that ViSalus offers.

HUGE NEWS!!! A Body by Vi Challenger from Minnesota has Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance. They are now paying for her kit! They are saying it is a wellness product and put it under a weight lose program. She gets up to $300 a month for this from the plan she is on! Check with your insurance to see if they offer the same benefit.

I’m not sure if any other insurance companies are paying for these health products other than Blue Cross and Blue Shield right now. Blue Cross and Blue Shield obviously sees the ViSalus products as something that helps people become more healthy and fit and this is why they’re paying for the health products. Once this catches on, I’m sure other insurance companies will follow suite and offer this benefit as well.

This is beneficial in so many ways. This can lead the way for people to become more health conscious by joining a fitness challenge and taking health products that have been proven to work and their insurance company pays for it. Any time health insurance pays for health products, that’s a good thing for all.
