Building the next-generation transparent health insurance platform by the people, for the people.

Blockchain-based Transparent Healthcare

Our proposed network will completely disintermediate the insurance company and the pharmacy benefits manager. We will cut the fat and allow individuals to purchase health insurance at a 50% discount or more compared to normal insurance with better coverage. Our solution is the way to a free market in healthcare.

Claims Adjudication Layer

We will be begin by implementing a fast, decentralized adjudication layer that allows organizations to connect directly with a provider and pharmacy network with minimal network fees. Then we will revolutionize value-based payments by incentivizing improvement in the patient state.

Risk Pool Layer

We will implement a risk pooling solution that allows everyone to pay for exactly as much insurance as they need for their current situation. Complete transparency and profit sharing means that everyone shares in the cost of the health of the community.

Vaidya Insurance

We will set up our own insurance company, open network, no or low deductible and allow patient-choice while decreasing total healthcare cost. Empower patients and providers to drive costs down together, without any intermediaries.

Organization Pool Layer

In keeping with government regulations and tax laws, we will allow organizations large and small to easily join the self-insurance revolution and take advantage of the multiple innovative ancillary services. From concierge services, to personalized cost negotiators, to innovative startup companies disrupting healthcare payments and contracting, all organizations will be able to take advantage of this ecosystem.
