Our story
Our story

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.

Join our team

We have ambitious goals for the future of healthcare, and we’re always looking for curious, collaborative people to help us achieve them.
