We want to make routine healthcare affordable and put control back in the hands of consumers and providers. Afterall, two thirds of all the healthcare delivered in the U.S. is either office-based or outpatient and generally affordable.Ask anyone how they feel about paying for an expensive health plan and then having to pay copays, deductibles, the non covered portion of your bill and dealing with restrictive networks. In fact, most people will tell you that they pay more for their care each year than is paid for by their plan. Our mission is to change that.We are building a platform where providers post costs for routine healthcare services so consumers have the freedom to access care without all the friction of micromanagement. Our goal is to create a convenient digital experience that puts patients and doctors first.
We believe in consumer directed care and giving providers the ability of working directly with their patients without intermediaries. This freedom and autonomy allows providers to do their best work and show everyone how they are valued.Furthermore, by working together directly everyone benefits from convenient access and we save the billions of dollars wasted on noncare administrative services and physician practice overhead.
