Better Health makes debut

SAN FRANCISCO – Better Health, an online supplier of urological and ostomy supplies, has launched with $3.5 million in seed funding. 

The provider, which offers “white glove service,” also has national contracts with major insurers, including Humana and Oscar Health. 

“Better Health improves the lives of patients who use medical supplies by getting them the best products in a timely, cost-effective and stress-free manner,” said Naama Staubler Breckler, who co-founded Better Health and previously started CompactCath. “More importantly, we provide our members with education and support, so they’re better prepared to manage their chronic condition in the long run.”  

The seed round was led by 8VC, with participation from Caffeinated Capital and Anorak Ventures. 

Also participating in the round: digital health executives Robert Hurly and Scott Flanders of eHealth. 

“I’ve worked with Medicare Advantage and commercial insurers for more than 30 years,” said Hurley. “Patients requiring medical supplies comprise a large and growing share of health care costs, in part because these patients have high hospital readmittance rates related to their medical supplies. Better Health provides expert guidance to help patients select the right supplies and learn to use them.”
