Amino Health is making healthcare more intuitive, accessible, and convenient because a system that benefits patients, benefits everyone.
In 2013, I applied for health insurance, and was denied coverage. I then entered the healthcare labyrinth many of us know all too well. I spent weeks trying to find a different plan, figure out if I could afford coverage, and choose new doctors. These decisions were incredibly important, but I didn’t have the context, information, or expertise I needed to make confident choices.
This is why we built Amino Health – to empower patients to make better health decisions.
