About T2D.com

T2D.com is a 100% owned subsidiary of Vertical Insight Corp, a leading technology innovator in human healthcare and insurance services. The mission of T2D.com is to make healthcare solutions for individuals that are type 2 diabetic and pre-diabetic more affordable and consistently available.

Millions of Americans have found that prescription medications like Ozempic (Semaglutide) and Mounjaro (Tirzepatide) can significantly improve their lives and decrease the health challenges that are commonly associated with T2D (type 2 diabetes) and Pre-Diabetes.

The United States healthcare system, from primary care doctors, chronic disease specialists, hospital systems, and insurance carriers are seeing the improved health outcomes that are a result of the advancement of GLP-1 medications. Not only are these medications providing improved health for diabetics, but they are also reducing the risk of stroke, heart attack, and death from cardiovascular causes. This combined with the demand from individuals that are dieting seeking out these same medications has created a global shortage that is not expected to end until after 2027, if ever.

Complicating matters more, is that often individuals that attempt to use popular online pharmacies to secure medication are having their primary continuum of care disrupted by the requirement to use a telemed service to prescribe medication. Telemed certainly has its place in the healthcare system, but it is our opinion that it should not be considered a replacement for the primary care doctor or endocrinologist. Relying entirely on telemed can result in there being a disconnect between the primary care doctor, specialist and patient.

T2D.com does not believe that this is in the best interest of the patient. It is our belief that the primary care doctor or an existing specialist should be responsible for prescribing the medication used, dosage and schedule.

By contracting directly with highly vetted and fully licensed pharmacies and (USA based) pharmaceutical manufacturers that also have a sincere interest in serving the needs of type 2 diabetics - the end result is T2D.com. A unique program focused entirely on serving the needs of type 2 diabetics and pre-diabetics.

The founding team at T2D.com is composed of individuals that have extensive experience within the healthcare and health insurance sector. Their prior venture Health Network Group, is one of the most successful human healthcare companies in history. Its success is not only measured by the millions of consumers it has successfully served, but also by its pristine track record helping individuals in the United States and being a truly consumer focused company. The company was acquired by Allstate in 2020 and is a large part of Allstate Health Solutions.

In 2023 the CEO of T2D.com left Allstate to launch this company specifically to address the needs of the type 2 diabetic and pre-diabetic market.

Motivation For Building T2D.com

“In 2014 a highly respected mentor in healthcare really helped open my eyes to the challenge that is facing consumers and the healthcare system by type 2 diabetes. From that point on I became obsessed with figuring out a way in which we could replicate what we did in the prior business, but focused on serving diabetics. Our ultimate end goal is doing whatever is needed to help the United States healthcare system eradicate Type 2 Diabetes.

I'm not a person that is enthusiastic about taking medications unless it is necessary. My father was type 2 diabetic and I incorrectly thought that most of these issues are related to diet and self control. After years of research, I like many others working in healthcare have come to the conclusion that food quality and genetics are the primary challenge. Consumers aren't actually to blame, because the deck is stacked against them from the outset. There is a significant lack of truly healthy foods in the United States and that combined with modern society living a far more sedentary lifestyle, it has resulted in hyper accelerated type 2 diabetes rates.

GLP-1's have been around for more than twenty years, and it's only really within the last five years that they're reaching these truly life changing efficacy rates. The results that diabetics are experiencing - speak for themselves. There are type 2 diabetics that are going into remission after using a GLP-1 for less than a year and making some modest lifestyle changes. If that alone isn't motivation enough, there's early data that indicates that GLP-1's are reducing inflammation in different parts of the body. This is resulting in positive outcomes for kidney and liver disease, heart disease, brain function and even reproductive health.

I'm certain that insurance carriers want their members to benefit from medical breakthroughs as the data really does speak for itself. Because of the unprecedented demand, and the limited supply - for the next five years it is very likely that the industry and diabetic's primary challenge is availability and cost. T2D.com's model is about transparency, efficiency and bypassing the typical paths that increase cost and make scaling the allocation of medication to type 2 diabetics difficult. In the previous business Health Network - I learned that in order to accomplish game-change results, you have to build everything required and fully commit to protecting the consumer experience above all. So that's precisely what this team is doing. Our model is about connecting supply and demand and getting out of the way.”

Motivation For Building T2D.com

“Having over 40 years in the insurance and financial services industry I have always strived to create a positive result for both my co-workers and customers. I have been involved in all aspects of building a business from the ground up. My strategy is to follow the positives of the large corporate environment, while leaving behind the less positive attributes that do not create an ideal experience. As a co-founder with my true partners of T2D's parent company, this organization offers the ideal environment to create the most optimal results. Our success is not quarterly driven but measured in generating long term benefits to the diabetic community.”

Motivation For Building T2D.com

“Working in software companies, I have always tried to push the boundaries of the current technology of the day to propel new products forward. This is rewarding because the technical challenges are often what we get into the business for in the first place, but it never much mattered what I was working on as long as I was solving hard technological problems. This changed for me when I joined Health Network in 2013. For the first time, I truly realized how much of a difference I could make in people's lives working on a project like that, that I would never have an effect on if I just built the next video game or enterprise communications solution. This has been taken to a whole new level with the opportunity to work on T2D.com.”

“As an insurance agent and a family man, I found myself frequently limited in how much assistance I could provide to my type 2 diabetic clients, particularly concerning the high costs and recurring challenges in securing the medications they critically needed. This persistent struggle, common among many agents, centers around affordability and reliable access to essential treatments. Joining T2D.com was a pivotal move for me, aligning perfectly with my goal to address and resolve a significant, specific issue within the healthcare system. By contributing to a business dedicated to tackling these challenges, I am now better positioned to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those managing type 2 diabetes. T2D allows me to help more families a lot faster.”
