Our mission is to reinvent healthcare, fairly.
Highlight Health provides affordable healthcare solutions to workers who aren’t eligible for traditional insurance, as well as proprietary processes for self-funded health plans to help control costs.
CHANGING HEALTHCARE FOR GOOD
Fairness is possible.
As of 2022, a staggering 46 million Americans can’t afford necessary healthcare and 26 million more are uninsured.
Despite the horror stories highlighted constantly in the news regarding healthcare billing as well as the implementation of laws and regulations that are supposed to protect against unfair billing practices, affordable healthcare is still not available to millions of Americans. This is further evidenced in the number of people that have insurance that they can’t afford to use because of poor plans and high deductibles and the number of people who are scared to seek medical treatment because they anticipate receiving an exorbitant bill.
Highlight Health was born while our team painstakingly researched how to provide access to affordable care for everyone, starting with employers and their workforces, and then expanding to underinsured and uninsured Americans.
In fact, the tools to level the healthcare playing field were there, but it takes specialized knowledge, technology, and know-how to wield and utilize them. And it takes high powered advocacy. With their yellow highlighters at the ready, the team that founded Highlight Health reviewed and analyzed thousands of documents, brainstormed best practices and workflows, found the right technology and operational teams to support the business, and came up with solutions to create a fairer and more equitable healthcare system for those who need it most. We then found some innovative companies, including self-funded employers, unions, and reinsurers, who were ready to have us get to work. And it worked, and has kept working.
Highlight Health has now saved millions of dollars for its clients and customers, positively impacting people along the way by reducing healthcare debt.

WE DUG IN DEEPER.
HERE’S WHAT WE FOUND.
Thousands of pages, hundreds of documents, reams of case law, and more hours than we cared to count later…
Somewhere deep in the research, we found it. The secret to fair healthcare rates wasn’t hiding in a major overhaul of our system or a loophole. It was in the rights that we all have and a few proprietary processes we discovered. The solution, however, was complex and for most, would require some kind of advocate to help navigate.
Hiding in Plain Sight
The answers were there, so we turned to our legal support to learn how to bring them to those stuck in the maze of never-ending hoops, rules, and increasingly expensive medical bills. It wasn’t that people and employers didn’t have rights, it was that those protections require medical knowledge, extensive networks, and real-time advice and advocacy. For most of us, the complexity and cost of healthcare is overwhelming…making us feel like the path to affordable, quality healthcare has permanently washed away, leaving us without a bridge to attainable, systemic change.
