Form Health, a Boston, MA-based obesity telemedicine company, raised $12M in Series A funding.
The round was led by M13 with participation from SignalFire and NextView Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to expand availability to 90% of the US population.
Founded by CEO Evan Richardson and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Florencia Halperin, Form Health is a medically supervised weight loss program that combines virtual care from board certified physicians with FDA-approved medications. The company employs a staff of board certified physicians and registered dietitians trained in obesity management. Each patient is paired with a physician and dietitian team for frequent check-ins that incorporate medical guidance and behavioral, nutrition, and activity changes for lasting weight loss and improved health.
The program is currently available in 21 states across the US including CA, IL, NY, PA, TX, and VA. As a medical service, reimbursed care may be covered by insurance at little or no cost.
