Here are some takeaways:
-- Twentyeight Health, which comes from the 28-day average menstrual cycle, provides telemedicine and sex educational services to underserved women who are on Medicaid or have no insurance (a population representing 60% of all women in the US). It currently focuses on helping women get birth control pills.
-- On Medicaid: 30 percent of black women; 24 percent of Latino; 19 percent of Asian/Pacific Islander; 14 percent of white.
-- To make this service more widely available, Twentyeight Health is partnering with community colleges, non-profit organizations and eventually payers. Bottomless Closet is an example of the companies Twentyeight Health partners with.
-- Currently 40 percent of its users are under 25 yrs old.
-- There are other prescription medication delivery newcomers out there but Twentyeight Health’s services are strictly focused on womens’ health. Its goal is to provide comprehensive end-to-end services, such as pre- and post-natal care to menopause.
