What our community is saying

Very competent Care Team

Love how everyone is so nice. This program is a blessing to me for sure. Thanks, 9amHealth.

Great service!

I work in the healthcare profession, I am very reluctant to go to a physician, because it’s so hard to get an appointment! Got my lab work done within a week and had medications that I probably should’ve been on for the last 10 years. So convenient I really wish this had been available a long time ago.

I don’t need to leave the house

This company is unbelievable. No doctor I’ve known has ever provided such incredible assistance and care, and I don’t need to leave the house. I am beyond impressed and grateful for 9amHealth.

What a time saver

9am Health was easy to deal with and sent out my meds very promptly. The 3 month-supply is a time saver compared to picking up a one-month supply at my local pharmacy and dealing with frequent refill requests through my doctor's office.

9amHealth is AMAZING!

Dealing with 9amHealth has been the best experience in the healthcare field that I've ever had in my life. The staff is fantastic! They bent over backward to accommodate my requests and got me what I needed amazingly fast. I can't recommend them enough. Wish I could give them 10 stars!

Ray McDaniel, 9amHealth member
Very affordable

When diagnosed with diabetes I was freaking out. I came across 9amHealth and they are amazing! They are always there no matter what time. I totally enjoy the fact I can do everything from home. Best part is they are affordable!

My experience with 9am health has been awesome

As a truck driver, it's difficult to make doctor's appointments. 9am health simplified the whole process of getting my medication when my doctor wouldn't fill the prescription unless I came to the office. And all he does is ask the same questions and write the prescription, which I then have to wait for at the pharmacy to receive. 9am health ships it right to your door. I will continue to use them from now on. Thank you so much!

Will a change in health & fitness help with diabetes?
Frequent exercise has been shown to improve blood glucose levels in people with diabetes. Our Care Team can help you to establish healthy lifestyle routines that fit your life.
How do refills work?

For all of our generic medications, we take care of your prescription refill and automatically send your medications before you run out. Alternatively, you can pick them up at your preferred pharmacy. 

Some medications, like GLP-1 Receptor Agonists and SGLT-2 inhibitors, need prior authorization from your health plan. Our Care Team will keep you updated about their refills.

Do you also offer lab tests?

Yes, we're offering the following lab tests: 

  • A1c to measure your average blood sugar levels over the past 3 months
  • Lipid Panel for heart health
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel for liver and kidney health and electrolyte balance (available in select locations) 
  • Urine microalbumin test for kidney health (available in select locations) 

In select areas, we send a lab technician to your home to draw your blood. If at-home labs are unavailable in your area, you can visit your nearest lab (patient service center) to have your blood drawn. 

Results are available in your 9am account within 48-72 hours.

Should I cancel my prescriptions when I sign up for 9amHealth?
Once you join 9amHealth, we recommend that you wait a few weeks to cancel your current prescriptions.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our support team at (202) 932-9958 or email us at support@join9am.com.
What are potential side effects of Pioglitazone?

In some cases, Pioglitazone can cause swelling of the legs and feet.

Your Care Team can help you navigate any side effects.
