About Us

We believe in a better way to price, explain, and pay for healthcare on behalf of insurers and their members, because more affordable and transparent care is good for all of us.

Leading the way for healthcare payments.

We’re proud to work with payers, providers, and healthcare consumers. In everything we do, we seek to bring harmony to each step of the payment process by empowering all to pay for care, with care.
