In 2016, Google’s healthcare arm (Verily) and drug manufacturer Sanofi partnered to form a new diabetes company, Onduo. After one-and-a-half years of near-silence, Onduo has now become more public about its efforts, launching a virtual diabetes clinic in select states for people with type 2 diabetes.

Adults with type 2 diabetes (18+ years) and with Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance in South Carolina, Arkansas, and Georgia may be eligible to enroll in Onduo at no cost. (If this applies to you, get enrollment details here.) Onduo has not announced when it will become available for people in different states or on other health plans.


This looks like it could a highly effective combination of services consolidated into a mobile device. Unfortunate that it’s geographic focus is limited. Knowledge is power.
