About HealthJoy

HealthJoy is a fast-growing, venture-backed technology company headquartered in Chicago on a mission to transform broken healthcare experiences. HealthJoy leverages artificial intelligence and curated resources to help employees and their families understand and leverage their benefits, navigate the healthcare system, and manage costs. The app features a virtual assistant, JOY, that makes navigating healthcare a personalized, proactive conversation. Whether connecting with a doctor virtually or a local specialist, researching a procedure, lowering prescription costs, or negotiating a medical bill, employees simply chat with JOY whenever they need help. The platform integrates health plan information and other benefits for personalized recommendations, and is is fully supported by a team of healthcare concierge who help employees through more complex issues, saving money, time, and frustration.

The Founding Story

HealthJoy was founded in 2014 by accomplished entrepreneurs Justin Holland and Doug Morse-Schindler. HealthJoy started by serving members in the individual healthcare insurance market, (Obamacare plans) where they served over 50,000 members. After successfully proving their engagement strategy and ability to contain costs for tens of thousands of individuals, HealthJoy entered into the employee benefits market in 2016. They distribute their platform to HR teams across the country through benefit advisors, third party administrators and health plans to help employers address the costs and complexity of health benefits.
