Virta is offered at no cost to eligible State Health Plan primary members ages 18 and older.

Who is eligible to participate?

State Health Plan primary members ages 18 and older who have Type 2 diabetes are eligible to enroll. There are some medical conditions that may exclude members from participating in Virta. The program is available to members for as long as they need it.

How much does the program cost?

Virta is available to you at no cost. The State Health Plan will cover 100% of the cost.

How does Virta work?

Virta uses food as medicine to help you naturally lower your blood sugar and lose weight. With Virta, you don't need to eat less; you learn to eat more better-for-you meals under the personalized guidance of a remote medical care team. There is no calorie-counting or exercise required.

Each participant receives:

  • Medical supervision from a physician-led care team;
  • One-on-one support from a dedicated health coach;
  • Diabetes testing supplies, including a Bluetooth connected meter and scale; and
  • Access to educational tools like videos and recipes and a private online support community.
