Reverse type 2 diabetes with Virta

Virta is a medically supervised, research-backed treatment that reverses type 2 diabetes, meaning that patients can lower their blood sugar and A1c, all while reducing diabetes medications and losing weight.

TSHBP fully covers the cost of Virta, valued at over $3,000, for all eligible members with type 2 diabetes.


How Does Virta Work?

Nutritional Ketosis

Virta uses nutritional ketosis to naturally lower blood sugar and turn the body into a fat-burning machine. There is NO surgery, required exercise, or calorie counting on Virta.

Personalized Treatment

With Virta’s personalized treatment plan, each patient gets medical supervision from a physician-led care team, a one-on-one health coach, diabetes testing supplies, educational tools like videos and recipes, and a private online support community.

Streamlined Access

Virta provides around-the-clock monitoring and care—there are no waiting rooms and no lines. With an easy-to-use mobile and desktop app, Virta can be done from anywhere.
