About us
We help people find, enroll in, and use ACA (a.k.a. Obamacare) health coverage. We've helped over 5 million people enroll, saving over $30 billion through government subsidies in the process. We've doubled enrollments and revenue each year for the past 3 years, and we are now the largest ACA enrollment platform after HealthCare.gov. We're profitable and on track to make mid-eight figures in revenue for 2021.

We're a mission-driven team that advocates for and cares about the people we serve. We are a double bottom-line company - revenues and enrollments in ACA coverage. The ACA brings high-quality, comprehensive, and affordable health coverage within reach for low-income Americans. And we exist to make that promise a reality. Your contribution will positively affect millions of people, helping them to navigate the complex and confusing health insurance industry and to access health care when they need it.
