Company’s West Coast expansion will increase access to affordable sexual and reproductive healthcare
NEW YORK, February 9, 2021 — Twentyeight Health, a digital health company offering affordable access and convenience for women’s sexual and reproductive healthcare, today announced an expansion across the West Coast. Starting today, Twentyeight Health is available to residents of California, Oregon, and Washington.
“As Twentyeight Health continues to grow its geographic footprint, our team remains committed to giving women who are under- or uninsured an affordable and high-quality choice for sexual and reproductive healthcare services,” said Amy Fan, co-founder of Twentyeight Health. “Starting today, millions more women across the U.S. will have access to our user-friendly telemedicine platform, and we look forward to launching in a number of new states later this year.”
Twentyeight Health offers telemedicine services for birth control across nine states — California, Florida, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Washington. Twentyeight Health accepts Medicaid in the majority of the states it’s available in, along with a wide range of commercial insurance. The company is working to provide free birth control for women who are not able to pay out of pocket through a partnership with Bedsider’s Contraceptive Access Fund, and donates 2% of revenues to Bedsider, and the National Institute for Reproductive Health. The expansion efforts have been spearheaded by Livia Keseman, the strategic projects manager at Twentyeight.
“What really sets Twentyeight Health apart is our focus on providing the highest-quality telemedicine experience at the most affordable price,” said Bruno Van Tuykom, co-founder of Twentyeight Health. “Our team is just as dedicated to giving customers a seamless experience in communicating with doctors and receiving their prescriptions as we are to ensuring that all of our customers can afford the care they receive.”
To sign up for Twentyeight Health, new customers fill out a medical questionnaire online, which a U.S. board-certified doctor reviews within 24 hours. Online audio consultations and doctor messaging are also available at no extra charge. Twentyeight Health provides ongoing care through unlimited doctor follow up messages to discuss issues such as updating prescriptions or addressing side effects.
Twentyeight Health recently raised $5.1M in a seed funding round led by Third Prime. The company also announced partnerships with Healthify and Juno4Me as part of the organization’s continued expansion. To learn more about Twentyeight Health, visit www.twentyeighthealth.com.
