For some Guests, participation in our weight loss programs can be tax deductible. If your physician has recommended you lose weight to treat a specific weight-related disease (such as obesity, hypertension, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.), you may be eligible to include certain portions of our program fees as a medical expense.
We strongly suggest you get documentation from your physician stating the above health recommendation. For more information, please speak with your tax consultant. Internal Revenue Service Publication 502 (2010)
*Even if your weight loss is not tax deductible, the savings of medical care for individuals within a normal weight range are substantially less than obese patients (as sited in a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
