Easy-to-use devices to track your health

An entire medical team is there to support you and will collaborate with your current team of MSU Health Care providers. Your health is monitored around the clock, giving you peace of mind.

How Better Connected works for patients

1
Initial telehealth video visit

You will participate in a 15-30 minute telehealth video visit with a Better Connected physician who gets to know you, determines your eligibility, reviews your medical history, and creates your personalized care plan.

2
Easy-to-use devices

Better Connected sends you a set of easy-to-use health devices that measure and automatically report on your blood pressure, blood glucose and weight. Your health information is automatically sent to a Care Manager who reviews your data every day. The devices are easy to use and don’t require WiFi. Many patients qualify to receive all this at no out-of-pocket cost.

3
Ongoing relationship

Your dedicated Care Manager works with you to find ways to improve your health. If your health numbers are of concern, your Care Manager will check in with you to discuss next steps. You can always contact your Care Manager by text, phone, or video chat.

Frequently asked questions

Does Better Connected replace my current MSU Health Care primary care provider?
ANSWER
We do not replace your MSU Health Care primary care provider. Instead, we collaborate with your current provider to help deliver the best possible care to you.

Better Connected becomes a critical component of your own health care ecosystem, to help each of your provider’s care for you better than ever before.

We have heard from many primary care providers that Better Connected becomes an incredibly powerful tool in their toolbox, providing a much more complete picture of you — the patient — than they’ve ever had before, which, quite simply, helps them treat you better, leading to better health outcomes.

With Better Connected, you keep all your existing MSU Health Care providers — we supplement them, collaborate with them, and work in harmony to do the most important thing: keep you healthy.
Do I need Medicare to sign up for Better Connected?
ANSWER
No. You do not need Medicare to sign up. When you reach out to us by clicking here, we will run a quick and easy check to determine your insurance coverage (if any), work with you to determine the best payment method for you and identify any financial responsibility you may have. We believe in price transparency, not price confusion.
Are there hidden fees?
ANSWER
We will always tell you prior to signing up and before your first appointment whether you qualify for our program at no out-of-pocket cost, or if you have any financial responsibility.

We can’t guarantee what your insurance will cover or how much they’ll pay, but what we can guarantee is that we’ll tell you upfront, with 100% clarity.
Do I talk to real people, or is this program run by computers and algorithms?
ANSWER
We believe in relationship-driven health care. That’s a fancy way of saying that, at the end of the day, human relationships are the most important thing to us, and we’ll treat you just like you’re a part of our
