Led by CEO Naama Stauber Breckler, Better Health provides individuals with chronic conditions with medical supplies from home. By offering personalized product recommendations, out-of-pocket cost estimates, and handling all medical and insurance paperwork, the company helps its members sort through hundreds of available products to find a suite of products suited to manage their unique condition and needs. Better Health not only handles its members’ supply needs, but also helps them build the skills to manage their condition at home by providing one-on-one coaching, support groups, and robust content & education as part of their membership.
The company is currently focused on serving patients with ostomies or chronic urological conditions, and is expanding the categories it serves to meet members’ needs.
Better Health is a Medicare-licensed provider in 48 states, in addition to working with multiple Medicaid plans and commercial plans like Humana and Oscar Health.
