The healthcare industry is complicated. There are a lot of cooks in the kitchen – doctors, insurers, brokers, employers, regulators – and sometimes in all the noise the needs of the consumer get lost. With big changes coming thanks to The Affordable Care Act, it’s about to get even more challenging. Not only will people be required to have health insurance coverage, many will be responsible for finding, buying and managing it on their own. Consumers need someone in their corner – proven experts who can offer up simple ways to make sense of it all and remove unnecessary, annoying obstacles. Gravie puts consumers back in control. Gravie makes this transition simple and easy, by removing these obstacles and focusing only on what’s important. We call it insurance independence. We help consumers choose and buy insurance, pay for it, and manage all health care expenses in one place. With Gravie, consumers don’t have to track down price comparisons, spend hours trying to differentiate between a copay and a co-insurance, determine if they qualify for tax credits from the government, or worry if they’ll get penalized under the new regulations. Gravie takes care of all of this so that no one becomes overwhelmed trying to figure it out alone. By using smart technology and by building good partnerships – with insurance companies, state health care exchanges, banks and outsourcers — we make sense of something that has historically been way too complicated. Gravie‘s founders have started and led some of the most innovative, industry-changing healthcare companies in the last decade. They created the first private health insurance exchange, started one of the most successful wellness programs, and developed one of the first account-based health plans. They’ve been successful because they build products and services around the needs of the consumer, ignoring the noise from the other vested interests. With Gravie, they’ll use their experience and their understanding to help consumers thrive in the fast-changing healthcare market.
