Frequently asked

How do I pay for Miga?

You use your health insurance to pay for Miga. We’re covered by Medicare and Sana, and we’ll be adding more payors in 2023. You can also use your insurance for lab tests and medications that might be part of your personalized heart health plan.

Please note that you’re responsible for any copay or coinsurance, just as you would be for an in-person doctor visit.

How much does Miga cost?

We’re covered by Medicare and Sana, and cost-sharing works the same as when you see a doctor in person. For most people on Medicare, our entire program only costs $20 to $50 a month, including our app and devices (blood pressure monitor, scale). For those with Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap), our program can be as low as $0 a month. Most people on Sana can also access Miga for $0 a month.

You may use your insurance to cover any medications or labs, and there are no additional fees beyond your normal cost-sharing. There are no annual fees or monthly subscriptions. You can also cancel the program at any time.

How is Miga different from seeing a doctor in person?

Built by physicians and backed by the latest research, Miga delivers best-in-class heart health care that we wish everyone had access to in more traditional clinics. We combine unique expertise and personalization with both convenience and ongoing support, making it simple to improve your heart health without unnecessary frustration or stress.

With Miga, you can book virtual visits within days, automatically share your blood pressure and weight data, and message with your dedicated care team right in the app. Your personalized plan may include effective medications, expert diet and lifestyle advice, and simple daily actions to keep you moving forward. And, because your Miga care team will be paying close attention to your progress, you’ll never have to navigate your care alone.

This is heart health the way it should be.

What do the conditions you treat have to do with my heart?

The conditions we treat — obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol — are closely tied to heart health. We take a proactive and comprehensive approach to managing and preventing these conditions because that’s how you get a healthy heart — and a healthy heart is the key to living longer.

Do you replace my primary care provider?

No. We provide best-in-class care for obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol, but we don’t provide the full spectrum of services of a primary care provider. We’re here to complement your current doctor, not to replace them. When you enroll with Miga, we’ll communicate with your primary care provider to coordinate your overall care. Please note that you are not required to have a primary care provider to enroll with Miga.

What types of medication do you offer?

Depending on your personalized plan, we may prescribe medication in combination with lifestyle support. Some of the medications we prescribe include GLP-1 agonists, antihypertensives, metformin, and statins. Most of the medications available through our program are generic, but we provide insurance navigation for medications that require prior authorization. It is not a requirement to take medication in order to work with Miga.

Do you prescribe GLP-1s?

When appropriate, we prescribe GLP-1 medications including semaglutide (Wegovy, Ozempic, Rybelsus) and tirzepatide (Mounjaro) that are important for the effective management of obesity and diabetes. We prescribe them in combination with expert diet and lifestyle support.

Depending on your personalized heart health plan, we may also prescribe other medications for obesity.

Are the blood pressure monitor and scale included?

Yes. If you enroll in our at-home monitoring program for high blood pressure and/or obesity, a validated blood pressure monitor and scale are included. These devices are automatically synced with the Miga app, so they don’t need to be paired via Bluetooth. Plus, the data is automatically shared with your Miga care team, who check your readings daily and alert you if anything is wrong.

Do I need to get lab work done?

Yes. In order to determine which medications are best for you and create your personalized heart health plan, we require that you complete lab work or share recent results with your Miga care team. You can submit recent results through the intake process or get your lab work done at any Quest Diagnostics location.
