Weight Management and Diabetes Solutions
At Raymond James, we understand the importance of preventive health and wellness benefits. We want to support your financial and physical health, helping you minimize costs and maximize wellness.
Keeping a pulse on your health is essential. We are proud to partner with Virta and Omada, two programs designed to help change your lifestyle and combat diabetes. Find out your risk for diabetes and learn how you can take control of your health.
Associates and dependents between the ages of 18 and 69 who are enrolled in a Raymond James medical plan are eligible to participate. Both programs are free of charge, and the below information will help you to navigate which program would be most meaningful to enroll in. It is recommended to only enroll in one program at a time based on current health goals.
Did you know that if you're diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, it's possible to reverse the diagnosis? Virta can help you reverse type 2 diabetes by losing weight, lowering your blood sugar and A1c, and reducing your need for diabetes medication. Virta helps you find your carbohydrate tolerance by harnessing the power of nutritional ketosis with no surgery, medication or calorie counting. Virta’s physician-led medical team and coaching staff will guide you through the program. Learn more about what to expect on Virta, and watch an overview of Virta treatment from a patient point of view.
To enroll in Virta, participants must be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This program is geared toward individuals looking to make significant lifestyle changes to reverse their diagnosis.
Omada is a personalized digital health program designed to help you reach your health goals, whether it's to lose weight, prevent chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease, or to stay on top of type 2 diabetes.
With Omada, you’ll make small, meaningful changes to the way you eat, move, sleep and manage stress. All participants will receive a professional health coach to create a personalized plan to reach your goals and a digital scale to monitor progress. If you’re living with type 2 diabetes, you’ll receive coaching from a certified diabetes specialist, connected glucose meter, and as many test strips as you need to keep you on track.
