    Our story

    In 2013, our CEO David Vivero applied for health insurance and was denied coverage. He'd recently left his previous job, and paying for COBRA didn’t seem worth the cost at the time. So he did what any of us would do: He went online and applied for insurance. But because he had a rare pre-existing condition (hereditary hemochromatosis), the plan wouldn’t cover him.

    He then entered the healthcare labyrinth many of us know all too well. He spent weeks trying to find a different plan, figure out if he could afford coverage, and choose new doctors. These decisions were incredibly important, but he didn’t have the context, information, or expertise he needed to make confident choices. He knew there had to be a better way.

    We created Amino to be that better way. Our digital guidance platform empowers patients with a smarter way to navigate the healthcare system and make decisions that lead to better care at a lower cost. We collaborate remotely across the US to build solutions that make a difference in the lives of employers and consumers nationwide.
