Off to a Fresh Start

EXCELLENT COVERAGE

Our unique reimbursement model makes it super easy to know the cost of care, allowing you complete control over your medical coverage and out-of-pocket costs.

PORTABLE BENEFITS

We offer a health-in-your-hands approach to healthcare that lets you carry your benefits through exciting job changes, family additions, and new adventures.

HSA QUALIFIED

HSAs: The rainy-day savings accounts with benefits. We made sure our Start plan is HSA-qualified to help you save for future medical costs (with a triple-tax advantage).

NO NETWORKS

No more crossing your fingers that your doctor is still in-network when switching health coverage. With Start, every doctor is on the table–we just hope you’re not on their table.

UPLOAD & DONE EXPENSES

It’s as easy as it sounds. Receive care, upload your receipt, and voila–we do the rest. You can even watch our progress as we review your expense and reimburse you. Cool, right?

QUICK REIMBURSEMENTS

Fast-moving health coverage: Say goodbye to those surprise medical bills you receive months down the road and get reimbursed for your payment once you reach your deductible.

It’s Never Been Simpler

We all research prices for vacation rentals, cars, a new flatscreen TV, but why don’t we do that with our healthcare? With gigantic savings on the line, your biggest concern will be…

“Why haven’t I done this before?!” 

Simply search for and choose a provider, receive care, and upload your itemized receipt to the Start app. Easy. 

How It Works

Start is the unicorn of healthcare.

Start pays a fixed benefit amount for every service it offers. Members then choose a provider, pay upfront for their procedure by paying at a cash rate which is usually significantly discounted, and get reimbursed the Start fixed benefit amount.
