About us

We are a profitable and fast growing healthcare startup -- a small and mighty team of 140 helping people find, enroll in and use ACA health coverage. We've doubled in each of the past two years and are now the largest ACA enrollment platform after, having helped over 10 million people enroll in health coverage. We're a mission-driven team who advocates for and cares deeply about the people we serve.

We are a double bottom line company. Our two bottom lines are revenues and enrollments in ACA coverage. Uniquely in our space, we only facilitate enrollment in on-exchange coverage. The ACA brings high quality, comprehensive and affordable health coverage within reach for low income Americans. We exist to make that promise a reality.

We are committed to building a team balanced in representation to best serve the people who use our products. We believe in creating inclusive and equitable spaces, which build trust and respect and foster a sense of belonging. These values are at the core of our culture, and we genuinely believe they will continue to lead our organization to successful outcomes.
