Why was Sesame created? What's the backstory?
We created Sesame because health care is a mess.
It's impossible to know how good a health care provider is and if it's worth it to see them. It's even harder to know how much it will cost you to see them. Not only are health care prices high, the hidden costs, unexplained charges, unexpected late bills, and invoices from third parties make seeking care intimidating and (ultimately) unaffordable.
Sesame's founders think there is a better way. We believe in connecting providers and patients directly, with up-front prices and clear descriptions of their medical services.
Sesame is designed for people who are uninsured or willing to pay their provider directly.
We connect these patients and providers, making quality health care more accessible, affordable, and transparent.
