About Us

We are a very profitable and fast-growing healthcare startup—a small and mighty team of 185 helping people find and enroll in ACA health coverage. We are the largest ACA enrollment platform, after, having helped over 15 million people enroll in health coverage. We're a mission-driven team who advocates for and cares deeply about the people we serve.

We're a double bottom-line company: revenues and enrollments in ACA coverage. The ACA brings high-quality, comprehensive, and affordable health coverage within reach for low-income Americans and we exist to make that promise a reality. Your contribution will help hundreds of thousands of people navigate the complex and confusing health insurance industry and enable them to access health care when they need it.

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.
