Dear (name),

We’re excited to share with you that today, Livongo entered into an agreement to merge with Teladoc Health, the world leader in virtual care. We are confident that this is in the best interests of you, our clients, and the Members we collectively serve.

From the day we founded Livongo, our vision has always been to empower people with chronic conditions to live better and healthier lives, beginning with diabetes, and then focusing on the whole person. Today, we also address hypertension, weight management, diabetes prevention, and behavioral health, with an integrated platform that makes it easier for our Members to stay healthy. The combination of Livongo and Teladoc Health accelerates our ability to provide Members with a comprehensive, virtual healthcare solution, helping to give them more control over their health options and improve their experience.

Our commitment to our clients and Members and best in class service has always been paramount to Livongo. Teladoc Health shares this pledge to uphold the highest standards of care and service. As combined company, we will preserve our commitment to building and maintaining deep relationships with all of our clients.

This announcement is just the first step in what is a very exciting development for Livongo. The agreement is expected to close by the end of Q4 2020, pending regulatory approvals and meeting closing conditions. There are still details that need to be worked out over the coming months and we will keep you informed along the way.

Until the approval and close of the merger, we will continue to operate as separate companies, and we are focused on our responsibility to serve our Members and our important partnership with you. Following the close, we will work together diligently to ensure our organizations are integrated seamlessly and ensure that this transition is seamless for our Members and you. Together, we can transform the way consumers access health care and make it easier for people to stay healthy via a new high-quality care delivery model focused on delivering unrivaled whole-person care for better health outcomes at lower cost.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your Client Team or any member of our Executive Leadership Team. Thank you again for being a trusted Livongo partner.
