Contract
HealthSherpa is a profitable and fast growing healthcare startup - a small and mighty team of 23 making it easier for people to enroll in and use ACA health coverage. One way we do this is by working with health insurance agents. We’ve launched a new product to help our existing base of 30,000 insurance agent clients scale their businesses with our technology. We need your help engaging those clients and spreading the word.
    
Our team has doubled in each of the past two years and we are now the largest ACA enrollment platform after Healthcare.gov, having helped over 1.8 million people enroll in health coverage. We're a mission-driven company who advocate for and care deeply about the people we serve. Ethics and integrity are a must - we do right by our customers and will expect you to as well.

HealthSherpa is also a double bottom line company. Our two bottom lines are revenues and enrollments in ACA coverage. Uniquely in our space, we only facilitate enrollment in on-exchange coverage. The ACA promises access to high quality, comprehensive and affordable health coverage for low income Americans, and we exist to make that promise a reality.
