Why medication?

The right treatment for your biology

Weight loss medication isn’t a last resort; it’s your best offense. With medication, we’re able to step in where biology and willpower alone cannot.
Rekha Kumar, MD, MS, Chief Medical Officer at Found
Former director for the American Board of Obesity Medicine
Prescription medication can treat the aspects of weight biology that we don't have control over. The medications Found offers are supported by clinical evidence to be highly effective and safe for helping aid with weight loss. We look at various factors to determine the medication that will be safest and most effective for each member’s individual needs.

According to the Obesity Medicine Association, prescription medication along with a healthier lifestyle doubles to triples the odds of losing 5%-10% of your body weight.

Frequently asked questions
  • What medications do clinicians at Found prescribe and are they FDA-approved?

    Found currently uses 13 different medications (that can be prescribed in 60+ combinations) to work with your biology to help you lose weight. You can learn more about each of them here.

    Found's program includes FDA-approved anti-obesity medications and other medicines prescribed ""off-label."" Clinical evidence shows these medications are effective for helping people lose weight. Prescribing a medication to treat a condition other than the one it was approved for is called ""off-label prescribing,"" which is legal, safe, and common: 1 out of 5 prescriptions written in the U.S. are off-label.

    Your clinician will review your medical history, weight history, and lifestyle to personalize a treatment plan to work with your unique biology.

    One more note: Prescriptions are up to a medical provider’s discretion. Found does not dictate prescribing practices or interfere with the medical judgment of our affiliated medical providers.

  • What if the medication I am prescribed does not work for me?

    That is a great question for your board certified medical provider who will monitor how you're responding the medication you have been prescribed and who can help answer questions about the best clinical approach for you. Your provider can make adjustments to the dose, switch your medication, or add a new prescription to what you're already taking to help you achieve lasting results. Found's providers work with a wide set of medications, giving them many options to personalize treatment for you. We know that weight-loss takes time and patience and we are with you every step of the way.

  • Why use medication for weight loss?

    Science overwhelmingly shows—and the American Medical Association agrees—that obesity is a chronic, complex disease that requires medical attention.

    Genetics contribute to as many as 70 percent of obesity cases. Hormones and your environment can also play a role. And traditional diets can lead to a cycle of weight loss and regain that makes it harder to lose weight and keep it off.

    Found's program is designed by one of the top obesity medicine specialists in the country. Our board-certified clinicians work to discover the underlying causes of each person's obesity and recommend personalized treatment plans for lasting weight loss.

  • What is combination therapy and is this something that Found's clinicians practice?

    Combination therapy is when a clinician prescribes two or more medications to help treat a condition.

    Found's providers can prescribe 13 different medications that can be used to form 60+ combinations. They can tailor a treatment plan that is right for your biology and weight loss goals.

  • Does Found require insurance?

    Found does not accept insurance. Your monthly membership includes the cost of many of the commonly prescribed medications we offer.

    GLP-1s (Ozempic®, Wegovy®, Mounjaro® and others) are not included in the cost of the program. If a Found-affiliated provider determines that the best medication for you is a GLP-1, we will work with you to navigate the insurance process and see if your insurance company will cover the cost of the prescription.

    Sometimes insurance companies require people to try other medicines before they will approve a prescription for a GLP-1. Ibefore they approve a prescription for a GLP-1. If this happens, your Found provider can work with you to create another effective treatment plan for your weight care.

  • Can I pay with my FSA/HSA account?

    You may be eligible for reimbursement through a health savings account, health reimbursement account, or flexible spending account. Our payment processor will allow you to purchase using an HSA or FSA card. However, it's up to your insurance provider whether they will accept the charge.

    Each insurance provider has their own guidelines for reimbursement. Contact your insurer to determine your eligibility for coverage and your out-of-pocket costs.

    Please note we don't provide itemized receipts if your insurance company asks for them. However, we can send you a detailed email regarding your participation in our program along with a receipt of the program costs.

    Our Clinical Care Team can also write a letter of medical necessity to support your reimbursement request.

    If your insurance denies coverage, then you'll be responsible for the cost. If you have any questions, would like to receive the email or letter of necessity, or need more information, please contact our support team at support@joinfound.com.

  • How long will I need to stay on medication?

    Your Found medical provider is the best person to help you answer this question. The answer is different for each individual.

    Obesity is a complex chronic disease—and genetics cause as many as 70 percent of cases. Many people need to take weight loss medication long-term, even after reaching their weight goal. Combining medication with lifestyle changes not only helps people lose weight—it also helps people maintain weight loss and avoid chronic conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. You can read more about how medication supports weight maintenance.

    The Obesity Medicine Association considers long-term treatment with medication a current standard of care. You can talk to your Found clinician about a maintenance plan as you approach your goal weight. If you decide to stop taking your medication, your provider will instruct you on safely tapering off.

  • Is blood work required to get started?

    Most prescriptions at Found do not require blood work or insurance. A few do, including metformin and GLP-1s such as Ozempic® or Mounjaro®.

    If you and your provider decide that one of these medicines should be part of your treatment, you'll need to submit blood work and insurance. Your provider will let you know when they need these documents.

    The lab test should be no more than 6 months old. You may already have results that we can use, or you may need a test.

    If you don’t have blood work from the past 6 months, you can ask your local care provider to order these tests, or we can connect you with our preferred lab network.

    Please read here for more information on how to get blood work and how to upload it to our portal.

    Please note the cost of lab work is not included in membership. It's an out-of-pocket expense.

  • What happens during the medical consult?

    During your initial consultation, your provider will review your medical history, your weight care goals and current medications you are taking. They'll use this information to recommend a personalized treatment plan to work with your unique biology for effective lasting weight loss.

    During follow up consultations, you can share your progress, ask questions, and address any medical concerns about your weight care. Your provider will monitor you and may make adjustments to your treatment plan.

    If you have questions or concerns regarding your membership, billing, or shipping please reach out to the Support team at support@joinfound.com

  • What is off-label drug use?

    Every FDA-approved medication has an approved label or indication for which it is prescribed such as a specific disease or condition. When a clinician prescribes medication "off-label," they are prescribing medication for use in a different way than the medication was approved by the FDA.

    Providers frequently prescribe medications “off label” when the medicine has a known benefit to treating a condition. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reports that one in five, or 20%, of all prescriptions in the United States, are for off-label use.

    While not always labeled for weight loss, all of our generic medications are FDA approved and have shown safety and efficacy for weight loss. These medications are the same as those offered in academic medical centers. Treatment through the Found platform expands access to obesity treatment by bypassing long waitlists for appointments and copays for visits.

    When prescribed responsibly, off-label medication can help expand a patient's range of options to ensure they're able to access the appropriate medication at the right dose for their specific biological needs.
