Court Ruling Requires Insurer to Pay Cost of Residential Treatment for Eating Disorder
Market Watch

In the wake of a federal court ruling this summer that a California woman’s insurance company should pay for residential treatment that she received for anorexia nervosa, psychologist Dr. Gregory Jantz echoed the court’s opinion that residential care can be medically necessary to treat severe eating disorders.

Dr. Jantz, a nationally renowned specialist in eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, said that round-the-clock care can be required for such disorders because treating them effectively involves constantly monitoring patients’ food intake and retention.
