The Problem You’re Solving:
Managing healthcare decisions is difficult & expensive. There’s a huge knowledge gap in consumers, which is happening at the same time that consumers are becoming responsible for more of their own expenses. We believe we can help consumers to make better decisions, like selecting the right plan, understanding coverage, projecting costs, choosing providers, understanding your medical bills and saving money.
Our core product is a search, comparison and recommendation engine for individual healthcare consumers. With an initial focus on health plans, we help our healthcare consumers search for available plan options, and recommend plans using our tools. From there, consumers can work with any of our enrollment partners to fulfill the purchase. The core product areas include Core Search (including rec engine, plan database, UI/UX), Ad Platform, Publisher Platform and Web Portal.
