What's covered on Virta?
A clinic in your pocket.
Skip the waiting room! Virta puts an online clinic in your pocket so that it's there when you need it. Get care anywhere, anytime.
Daily medical supervision.
Your Virta Provider takes over your diabetes care. But they won't replace your primary care provider. Instead, they work with them to coordinate your care.
Most patients are used to getting their diabetes care in just a few visits each year. On Virta, you get daily medical supervision from our physician-led team. Through the Virta app, your provider will keep you safe and adjust your medications in real time.
One-on-one health coaching.
Your Virta Health Coach is your guide to better health. They will help you change your diet and other health habits in a way that works for you. Your coach will be there to support and encourage you, every step of the way.
Most patients are used to only seeing their health coach once a month. Through the Virta app, you can message your coach whenever you need help.
All the supplies you need.
All diabetes testing supplies, like glucose strips, lancets, swabs, and a meter, are included. You also get tools to understand your ability to burn fat, including blood ketone strips and a connected scale.
Virta is all-inclusive, meaning you pay nothing for the supplies. Everything is shipped right to your door, free of charge.
Private patient community.
Through the Virta app, you can access our private patient community. In the community, patients share tips, like their favorite recipes. You can discuss your experience on Virta in a moderated, safe, and private place. Participation is optional, but most patients choose to join for the extra support!
