Bind On-Demand Health Insurance

Founded: 2016

Also honored in:

“We took health insurance apart. Now it works. Bind is a personalized health plan that offers choice, flexibility and cost transparency. We believe when you give people the tools they need to make informed decisions, they do.

Bind was formed in 2016 by veteran health insurance innovators passionate about making health insurance personal. We took health insurance apart and rebuilt it on a completely new chassis. We realigned solution and need, starting with what consumers told us they wanted and were missing, and ending with the savings and engagement results we believe employers always hoped for.

It’s health insurance without deductibles, coinsurance and the other barriers that get in the way. It’s health insurance designed for the way we engage with other services—our health needs met with clear options and costs. People choose their providers from a broad network. The amount they pay for care is clear in advance. Coverage answers are real-time. It’s health insurance that works out of the box and in the palm of your hand.”
