We at HealthSherpa are deeply committed to increasing access to healthcare for all Americans. Our mission is to match every consumer with the right health coverage and to help them use that coverage to take better care of themselves and their families. As part of that mission, we build software that is used by over 24,000 insurance agents to enroll people in ACA / “Obamacare” health insurance plans. Sometimes, those insurance agents have questions or need help. That’s where you come in.
