OMAHA, Neb., March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nebraska Total Care announced today that it is partnering with Weight Watchers to offer the Weight Watchers Beyond the Scale program to Nebraska Total Care members. This opportunity will help to enable healthy living initiatives in addition to the standard medical benefits already offered by Nebraska Total Care.

"Working with Nebraska Total Care will enable Weight Watchers to bring our proven weight management program to Nebraska Total Care members as well as reinforce the importance of taking preventative health measures to favorably impact at-risk individuals and reduce the risk of clinical conditions."
