About us

HealthSherpa is building the nation’s most comprehensive health insurance marketplace that allows easy access to healthcare plans to those in need of affordable healthcare coverage. We are continuing to build a team of versatile experts, passionate about making an impact.

We are a profitable and fast-growing healthcare startup – a small and mighty team of around 50, helping people to find, enroll in, and use ACA health coverage. We’ve doubled in each of the past three years and are now the largest ACA enrollment platform after healthcare.gov, having helped over 5 million people enroll in health coverage. We’re a mission-driven team that advocates for and cares deeply 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 impact millions of people, helping them to navigate the complex and confusing health insurance industry and to access health care when they need it.
