The healthcare industry is notoriously difficult to navigate. Nearly one-third of the $3 trillion spent on healthcare annually results from this complexity. Our mission is to simplify the healthcare experience in a way that provides access to better care at a lower cost.

О проекте

Come for the mission. Stay for the experience.

Let’s keep things simple: we are an unbelievably talented, hard-working, and compassionate team driving towards a mission that impacts every single one of us — even you! Healthcare benefits are complex, underutilized, and a mystery for most users. We’re removing that complexity.

Our industry-leading technology solution puts a simplified benefits experience in the hands of users, saving them time and money. Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve created a COVID-19 resource center, helped members find testing and care, and made it even simpler to get telemedicine and mental health support to employees.

HealthJoy experienced explosive growth in 2020: we raised $30M in Series C funding, earned awards for Talent Culture’s Best HR Technology Leaders and Built In Chicago’s Best Places to Work, added 55+ key team members despite going totally remote, and so much more. This year, we continue down that path of high growth and high impact.
