Owlet announced a strategic partnership with Wheel, a virtual patient care provider. Through this partnership, Wheel clinicians will provide caregivers of infants with prescriptions for BabySat, Owlet’s FDA-cleared infant pulse oximeter.

BabySat, featuring Owlet’s wire-free sock design, lets caregivers monitor their baby’s health and collaborate with healthcare providers to ensure optimal care.

“Home monitoring plays a pivotal role in safeguarding at-risk infants by improving access to health services,” said Jim Fidacaro, Owlet Senior Vice President and General Manager of Healthcare. “Owlet, in partnership with Wheel, can now enable parents to obtain prescriptions for BabySat directly via Wheel’s online portal and network of physicians. With a prescription, caregivers will then be able to order BabySat at little to no cost with insurance reimbursement.”

The BabySat virtual telehealth services platform, managed and powered by Wheel, also integrates with durable medical equipment (DME) suppliers who accept and can bill for the product through many insurance providers, who may offer up to 100% reimbursement for BabySat. This new, streamlined process makes advanced monitoring even more accessible by significantly reducing the effort and time needed to secure BabySat and get reimbursed through insurance or HSA/FSA.

“We’re thrilled to announce our strategic partnership with Owlet, a leader in smart infant monitoring. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in our mission to expand healthcare access and simplify care delivery for all Americans — especially for growing families,” said Wheel CEO, Michelle Davey. “Wheel’s virtual care platform helps streamline access to home monitoring, making Owlet’s BabySat pulse oximeter more convenient for new parents than ever before.”
