About Us

We simplify healthcare spending.

The way we see it, it’s time for a new way to empower people to get and stay healthy: By helping them afford healthcare.

Why? Because cost is often a major barrier to care:


51% of U.S. adults say they put off or skipped some sort of health care in the past year because of cost


37% of patients said they currently carry medical debt

4 in 10

4 in 10 employees have less than $500 in savings for medical bills in case of emergency


50% indicate that finances are major stress and they are distracted at work
