Certainly Health Raises $2.3M in Funding to Enable Consumers to Book Any Doctor With Upfront Prices

First-Of-Its-Kind Marketplace for Insured Patients to Book Health Providers Without Surprise Bills

Certainly Health, a healthcare marketplace for booking medical and cosmetic care with upfront prices, announces today that it has received $2.3M in funding led by Pacific 8 Ventures, Y-Combinator, and other institutional and angel investors. The new infusion of capital will be used to expand the team and improve the company’s product.

Certainly is the first and only marketplace for patients to book doctors with insurance while avoiding surprise bills. Patients enter their insurance and visit reason, and Certainly uses machine learning to predict and guarantee their out-of-pocket costs across providers in their neighborhood. For patients who book on the platform and end up owing more than the prices listed, Certainly will cover the difference on their behalf. This also means providers booked through Certainly will always get paid the entire patient responsibility.

57 percent of Americans have received a surprise bill, and 38 percent of Americans delay care for fear of the bill. Meanwhile, the cost of a healthcare service can vary by hundreds of dollars across providers with no difference in quality.

“Even with good health insurance, both my Co-Founder and I have received unexpected medical bills for thousands of dollars over the years,” said Kevin Chiu, Co-Founder and CEO. “These personal experiences are at the core of our mission to empower healthcare consumers to book health providers without fear of the bill.”
