Abstract

Obesity is a serious medical condition that can increase cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and certain cancers. Historically, lifestyle behavior changes and current weight-loss treatments have demonstrated mixed results that fall short of expectations for people trying to manage their weight. In contrast to current weight-loss options, semaglutide, a longer-acting glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1), has shown promising results by demonstrating on average 15% weight loss. The objective of my capstone is to perform a budget impact analysis that estimates the potential budget impact of adding semaglutide to the formulary for a hypothetical U.S. health plan.
