Who we are

Entrepreneurs. Strategists. Health Reform Advocates.
Reid Rasmussen
Co-Founder & CEO

Born and raised a Canadian, one of Reid’s proudest moments is becoming an American citizen. His entire career has been dedicated to helping Americans gain access to quality healthcare.

In 2009, he considered what Americans would need if the Affordable Care Act (ACA) passed. Based on his experience as a Canadian, he knew that up-and-coming non-insurance tools such as telehealth, doctors online, advocacy, and discounts would be in dire need.

Once he had the idea for a solution, he knew exactly where to turn for help…his lovely & talented wife.

Heidi Rasmussen
Co-Founder & COO

Heidi spent 27 years with a major department store where she held store and corporate management positions in marketing, buying, brand management, training and store environment. Being a “jack-of-all-trades" uniquely positioned her to run a successful business.

No matter what the product or service, she’s learned people want brands that engage and simplify their lives. Even more, they want brands to follow through on their promises.

There’s only one thing that would cause her to consider leaving her career in retail and that was her favorite person, Reid.

Tonia Degner
Chief Strategy Officer

Tonia has been a leader in the retail industry for 20+ years with a focus on driving vision and growth strategies in large P&L business sectors.
