About 9am.health

Our story

Many of us working at 9am.health live with diabetes. We know first hand about the daily struggles, the fights with insurances, forgotten prescription pick-ups and wasted time in doctor's waiting rooms.

The 9am.health program is designed for all of us who think that diabetes care can do better. Be easier, more affordable and kind.

We are a virtual diabetes clinic providing people living with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes with affordable medications and personalized, compassionate care. We think that every day of our lives with diabetes is not only a challenge but also the chance for a fresh start. Let's begin tomorrow at 9am.

How would healthcare look if it was invented today?

That’s what we asked ourselves before we started 9am.health. We think that the answer is: Healthcare should be easy, affordable, and kind - and heavily digital. It’s time to put users in the center and arrange healthcare around their daily lives.
