Healthcare for the people,
by the people.

Our Mission

To build an affordable healthcare economy that puts people first and is sustainable for generations.

Who We Are

Citizen Health is a group of innovators with medical, technology, & economic backgrounds redesigning healthcare together. We’re not accepting the status quo any longer. We believe healthcare could and should be better, and we’re taking it upon ourselves to make it happen.

Who We Are Not

We are not a political agenda with hidden motives. We are not an insurance company selling junk plans. We are not backed by private equity in search of a quick exit.
