About Collective Health

Collective Health is the world's first cloud-based employer self-insurance platform. We enable employers to sponsor employee health care on their own terms by extending the benefits of self-insurance to companies with 100 or more employees, and providing a level of customer service and care that has not been available in the health insurance industry before.

Job Description

We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, our families, and our friends, and know it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy, we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe health benefits should be simple, accessible, and technology-driven. Moreover, we believe healthcare should be grounded by the people that it serves. Our mission is to make understanding, navigating, and paying for care effortless.

We deliver a connected healthcare experience for over a quarter million members and 60 companies across the nation who want the best for their employees. If you want to make a difference in the healthcare of those around you, join us.
