Patient Referral

Refer my Patient to Profile

The health of your patients is of utmost importance, so having a proven resource you can trust is essential. Profile is a weight loss and nutrition program developed by top researchers and physicians at Sanford Health, one of the world’s largest healthcare providers. Our science-backed approach to healthy lifestyle change is designed to help your patients safely lose weight and keep it off. Studies show that your patients will lose 3x more weight working with a coach than trying on their own.*

Patient Letter of Medical Necessity

Provide this to your patient if they would like to use their HSA/FSA to cover their Profile membership fees. Your patient will need this letter filled out by their physician to qualify. It verifies that your Profile membership and monthly coaching is being used to lose weight for a certain medical condition. It is an IRS requirement.


We pride ourselves on being a part of a patient’s care team. Simply refer your patients to Profile and take comfort in knowing they will get the coaching they need to achieve their nutrition, activity and lifestyle goals. All members are encouraged to update their physicians and caregivers with regular progress reports as they advance in their Profile journey.

What do your patients get with a Profile membership?


A nutritionally balanced, reduced-calorie meal plan using a combination of meal replacement products and grocery foods to ensure adequate intake of vitamins and minerals. The use of meal replacement products is supported by the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics as an effective strategy for weight management.


A progressive exercise program individually tailored to the patient’s current activity and ability level. The Profile® plan encourages a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week as recommended by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
