How is Form Health different from other weight loss options?

You will work with certified doctors and dietitians, not coaches. All of your medical care will be managed through our app via telehealth. You will receive a complete medical evaluation, including lab work, by your Form doctor to determine how your weight affects your well-being and discover how weight loss will lead to a life of improved health. Only research-backed strategies and tools will be recommended. Fad diets and potentially risky products will never be suggested. We will work with you to create an individualized weight loss plan that works with your lifestyle and includes foods you love. If you and your Form doctor decide you are an appropriate candidate for weight loss medication, treatment is available. We accept many major insurances and your doctor's visits may be covered by your plan.

How do I qualify to be a Form patient?

You must be 18 years of age or older. You must have a BMI of 30+ or a BMI of 27+ with weight-related health risks, like high blood pressure. You must have an active relationship with a PCP and have visited them within the last year. There are certain medical issues that prevent safe participation, and we will inquire about these during the enrollment process. For your medical safety, it’s important that you provide us with accurate and complete information at all times.

What can I expect after joining?

After completing the enrollment process, you will be asked to download our free app and schedule video consultations with your Form Health doctor and dietitian. When these initial Telehealth visits are complete, you’ll be able to use the app to text with your Form team as much as you need and share your food photo journal for feedback and guidance. In addition, you’ll continue to have video visits with your Form doctor (about once per month) and dietitian (about twice per month).

What kind of foods will I be eating?

The great thing about our program is that you will eat real foods available in regular grocery stores—not expensive, pre-packaged diet meals. Our healthy eating approach focuses on lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, dairy, and beneficial starches and fats. The goal is to teach you how to form new, lifelong habits that are completely sustainable.

How will my care team know about my medical history?

As part of the enrollment process, we will request permission to review your medical records. We will also request permission to share information with your primary care provider (PCP). Only people who have an active relationship with a PCP and have seen them within the last year are eligible to be Form patients, in order to ensure we have adequate records of your recent medical history. This is also for your safety, because if any health issues arise that are unrelated to your weight and/or your Form treatment, we’ll recommend bringing them to your PCP’s attention.


How much does the Form program cost?

There are two options to get started with Form. 1. $99 per month for the monthly program fee plus Form doctor visits billed through insurance. We will bill your insurance for your Form doctor visits. Your monthly program fee will not be covered by insurance. You will be responsible for any copay, coinsurance, or deductible just as you would with any in-person doctor visit. Our monthly program connects you to our team of leading doctors and dietitians and our custom app, where you’ll have unlimited access to care team texting, meal photo sharing, and personalized educational content. You will have access to a Form Health community to interact with other patients as well as opportunities for group counseling if you would like. Upon joining, you will also receive a free scale and blood pressure monitor. 2. One-time Doctor Consultation billed through insurance. With this option you have telemedicine consultation with a Form doctor to get a clear understanding of what your individualized weight loss treatment will entail and why it will work for you. We will bill your insurance for your one-time telehealth consultation with a Form doctor.​​ You will be responsible for any copay, coinsurance, or deductible just as you would be for an in-person visit.​ If you decide to enroll in Form after your one-time consultation you will begin paying the $99 monthly fee.

How much will visits with my Form dietitian cost?

Visits with your dietitian are included in our monthly program fee of $99.

Will insurance cover this program?

Depending on your insurance plan, your Form doctor visits, lab tests, and medication costs may be covered; however, the monthly program fee of $99 will be your responsibility. If you do not have insurance, we do offer another plan option of $199 per month, where your Form doctor visits are included and we will not bill your insurance.
Form is also a qualified medical expense, so you can use your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) to cover our monthly program fee or the cost of your Form doctor visits based on the total amount owed.

How much will my Form doctor appointments cost if my insurance is in-network?

If you are using insurance for our services, the cost or “patient responsibility” of each visit will vary depending on your health plan. You will be responsible for any copay and coinsurance amount, just as you would be with an in-office doctor visit.

How much will my Form doctor appointments cost if my insurance is out-of-network?

We will bill your insurance for $150 for each Form doctor visit. You will be responsible for any amount that your insurance does not cover.

How can I check if my insurance covers the telehealth visits with a Form Health doctor?

Form works with most major commercial health insurances. If you have questions about your coverage, we recommend you speak with a Form Health Enrollment Specialist by calling (617) 505-1520 or emailing billing@formhealth.co. After you provide your health insurance details, your Enrollment Specialist can verify your coverage on your behalf.


Will I be prescribed weight loss medication?

For people who have obesity, weight loss medications can be helpful in decreasing cravings and allowing them to feel more in control. However, these medications only work when paired with a nutritious eating plan, physical activity, and other healthy behaviors. Your Form doctor will help you consider whether a prescription is appropriate for you, and if so, which specific medication would be most effective. Form only prescribes FDA-approved medications that have been studied rigorously for safety. The use of weight loss medication requires regular medical monitoring, so active participation in our program is necessary.


What if I need to cancel my monthly program?

You can cancel your Form Health program at any time through this link. Our cancellation policy is outlined in detail in our Terms of Use policy. Once you cancel, our care team will help you create a transition plan, so you can continue to work on your health and weight loss goals, even if it’s not with us. And of course, we are always here if you wish to come back!

What is the 30 day money back guarantee?

If you are not satisfied with the Form program within 30 days of joining, we will refund your monthly program fee. This does not include your doctor's visits.
