    Why Health Sherpa?

    Buying health insurance is difficult and intimidating. People have to make guesses about how much healthcare they'll need, what doctors are best, and whether or not they can access their medicines all while trying to decipher the complexity of health insurance and the industry jargon that comes along with it. Additionally, this information is spread across dozens of locations, in complex formats.

    Our Mission

    Our mission is to empower people in making such a huge decision that has an impact on their lives. We help these folks easily and confidently pick the right health insurance plan. To do this, we are building best-in-class user experiences around choosing and managing their health insurance, as well as managing their healthcare spending, and learning a few things along the way.

    Who We Are

    We are the number 1 private enrollment platform–enrolling over 5 million people in ACA health coverage to date. We are profitable, growing, and backed by several social impact venture funds.

    Join us to ensure that every person is given the human right to access, enroll in, and use quality, affordable health coverage.
