- How does Metta work?
Metta provides comprehensive doctor-monitored weight loss care at home with video calls, daily text messages, a digital app integrated with Fitbit or Apple Watch, and a digital scale. After creating a personalized plan that is unique to your weight loss challenges and optimized for your metabolic, functional, and behavioral health, our AI algorithms and adaptive intervention approach ensure that we respond as your body responds, allowing us to intervene before your body hits a plateau.
As you progress, our medical and coaching team and Artificial Intelligence (AI) based feedback will help you continually optimize your personal plan to reach your goals.
- How much weight can I lose?
Many lifestyle programs claim great results, but the problem is that such programs use a one-size-fits-all approach, and in most cases do not address the complex biology and metabolism changes that lead to weight regain. What works great for one person will do nothing for another individual with a lower metabolism or underlying health conditions. But Metta is a clinically proven program. On average, you can expect to lose 30-50 pounds in 3-6 months, or approximately 15% of your body weight. We are focused on the overall health of the individual by offering a sustainable weight loss solution.
-How much does the program cost?
As part of limited time offer, first consultation over phone is free (a value of $250). All clinical visits with a provider (in-person or virtual) are billed to your insurance. There is a monthly program of $99.99 (reduced to $74.99 as part of this introductory offer when you sign up for 6 months). Additionally, you can sign up for only 1 month to see if we are a good fit for you and we will honor the $74.99 monthly rate. We believe that by working digitally with our customers, we can pass on significant savings to you. For comparison, other medical weight loss programs can cost between $2300 and $5000.
-Can I charge the program fee to my HSA/FSA accounts?
Yes, Metta is a medically monitored under supervision of a physician. You can use your HAS/FSA card to pay for the program fee. We can also provide you with a medical letter and receipts.
- Does Metta accept health insurance?
Yes, all clinical visits with a provider (in-person or virtual) are billed to your insurance. Any labs, procedures such as metabolic rate measurement etc. are also billed to your insurance. If your health insurance does not accept our weight management services as a reimbursable service, you will be responsible for the clinical visit fee. This will be clearly explained in the financial responsibility policy.
- Do you prescribe weight loss medications?
Yes, we prescribe FDA-approved medications. Please do not hesitate to discuss your specific questions with our medical provider.
- Do I have to come in person?
No. Our program is designed to be delivered remotely through telehealth, especially during COVID-19. However, after that we prefer to conduct the initial assessment visit in person and can do the rest via telemedicine only or a combination of in-person and telemedicine visits.
-Do you use meal replacements?
Mettā™ offers OPTIFAST® meal-replacement products and provides the medical monitoring patients need while on the OPTIFAST® program.
