GLP-1s and Beyond:

A Holistic Weight Management Approach for Employers

On-Demand Webinar

According to the Obesity Action Coalition, 44% of people living with obesity would change jobs to gain coverage for treatment, which can include GLP-1 medications and digital solutions for lifestyle and behavioral change.

Employees are prioritizing their health and want accessible, simple solutions to support their weight management goals. Like employers, they recognize the high risk and cost associated with obesity, which is directly linked to the development of cardiometabolic conditions like diabetes and heart failure.

While coverage for GLP-1s is expanding, many employees may be paying out of pocket for these prescriptions. Regardless of coverage, those taking weight management medications require unique support to ensure success.

As a result, employers are now faced with crucial decisions regarding cost-effective strategies for weight management. What is the right digital health solution to effectively support their population of employees, each at different points in their weight management journey? And how should employers evaluate and select the right option?
