Molina Announces: Weight Assessment and Counseling for Nutrition and Physical Activity for Children and Adolescents (WCC)

Posted: 08/11/2020

What is the WCC measure? This measure demonstrates the percentage of members age 3-17, who had an outpatient/office visit with a primary care practitioner (PCP) or OB/GYN, and who had evidence of the following during the measurement year:

  • Body measure index (BMI) percentile
  • Counseling for nutrition
  • Counseling for physical activity

Why is the WCC measure important? According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents over the last three decades. Molina offers an incentive to eligible PCPs to promote the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents. Providers who complete all three components of the WCC measure will be eligible for a bonus of $15 per eligible member.
