We transform employee benefits

Increasing access to healthcare for employees, improving culture and business performance.

Our Mission

To make healthcare inclusive, to promote dynamic, administratively free delivery of employee health  and wellbeing benefits. Removing barriers and delivering better health outcomes. 
 Providing a modern, dignifying purchasing experience in the health and wellbeing sector, increasing the number of economic stakeholders participating in delivering better health outcomes.

A Word From our Founder, Steve Zinsli

Providing their employees with the power of choice and autonomy while simultaneously reducing administrative burdens for the organization and promoting higher productivity and lower costs.

Our Business Ideology

Our mission is to make healthcare more accessible and equitable for the most vulnerable members of society. To do this, we enable Employers to participate in their employees’ health and wellbeing.

Afterall, people on average spend 30% of their waking life at work and Employers stand to benefit the most from their employees’ improved health and wellness. As such, we have provided Employers with innovative payment technology linked to a digital health wallet that makes the delivery of employer funded health and wellbeing easy.

Just like a modern bank, we link the acquisition and delivery of health funding via a simple user centric payment card and app. Intuitive and innovative. Product Led Growth and Customer Centricity. We apply Lean Startup principle of design, deliver and iterate to deliver lightweight, customer centric products. Customer usage and feedback is critical to inform each stage of iteration whilst shortening the cycle between product enhancements.
