Telehealth weight loss clinic Calibrate is expanding its two-year old D2C biz and taking it into the workplace with the launch of ‘Calibrate for Enterprise,’ which makes its program of GLP-1 weight loss drugs and behavior change coaching now available to payers and self-insured employers as a packaged employee health benefit. CEO Isabelle Kenyon shares the news here and reveals that the enterprise offering actually launched in stealth-mode a little more than a month ago with three clients and already has signed up more members in one month than it had its entire first six months D2C. How does the math work on ‘Calibrate for Enterprise,’ when GLP-1 drugs are $700-$1,300 per month? Isabelle explains how they’re making the total cost of care equation work for payers and employers AND addresses common concerns about what happens to all that successful weight loss when employees eventually come off their meds.
