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.
