It’s time for a healthier model for employer insurance.

We understand that many employers have reluctantly accepted how our current healthcare system operates and figure that’s just how it has to be. We also realize that change is intimidating and a new approach like ours may seem too good to be true.

Well, that’s exactly what the companies we now call clients thought until they talked with our team, vetted our innovative, solutions-oriented Cost Plus model, and saw the undeniable benefits.

Our Goal

To offer accessible, high quality health care at a fair market price. 

Through our Cost Plus Model, we’ve been able to deliver on this goal. It starts with being aboveboard with everything. Clients can see how much a hospital bill was, what the discount was, what their fees were to get the discount. There’s nothing hidden in the process.

Our Philosophy

These are the three principles that guide all our client relationships.

  • Be transparent and open
  • Create a healthcare system that gives control back to employers
  • Educate companies & people on the problems with the healthcare system

BY THE NUMBERS

The healthcare dilemma

The numbers don’t lie when it comes to the out-of-control costs and impact of our current health insurance system.

The Amity Pitch

Look, it’s natural to feel a certain loyalty to your broker and insurance provider. There’s a perceived level of comfort and safety. But don’t you owe it to your company, and especially your employees, to consider proven alternatives that are disrupting the industry? We can take you through specific case studies, identify the most promising areas of cost-reduction, and do a side-by-side comparison with your current health insurance plan.
