Costco has unveiled a new weight loss program in the U.S. in partnership with Sesame, offering access to prescription medications like Ozempic and Wegovy. Priced at $179 for three months, the program includes video appointments with specialized clinicians, support with unlimited messaging, and nutrition and exercise advice. While not covering medication costs, the program enables access to popular drugs and lab tests, attracting both Costco members and non-members. David Goldhill, Sesame's co-founder, emphasized the mission to make high-quality specialty care more accessible and affordable. The program's approach of out-of-pocket virtual appointments directly with medical professionals allows it to maintain competitive prices, leading to increased accessibility for individuals interested in weight loss care. This initiative follows Costco's prior partnerships with Sesame, such as offering primary care checkups and virtual therapy sessions, reflecting the company's commitment to enhancing healthcare services. The weight loss program signifies a strategic move by Costco to address the growing demand for specialized healthcare services, catering to the evolving needs and preferences of its consumer base.
