We believe health care should be easier, more convenient, and less cost prohibitive than the current model. We believe individuals and companies of all sizes should have the same great options that large companies enjoy, and we believe we are positioned to bring it to them. We have the backing of the biggest and the best in the industry, but we’ve tailored our program for individuals and the small to middle sized company. This can be found in our pricing, products, service, and participant experience. Have we mentioned that 92% of members who use the program said they would use it again or that 37% of members who use the program do so more than once a year? Pretty impressive.
