A National Leader in Health Insurance Information Since 2006
HealthCare.com has been helping people make better health insurance choices since 2007. We help connect people with health insurance plans through our recommendation portal while also providing helpful information throughout the buying process. Our goal is to explain health insurance and healthcare options in a way that is easy to understand. Since we’re not run by a government office or insurance company, we’re able to provide a broad range of information.
Editorial Standards and Guidelines
We write for our readers. We understand that choosing health insurance is a difficult task. We also understand that it can have an outsized impact on you and your family. That is why we strive to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information to you. Our rigorous writing process ensures that each and every piece of content is written and reviewed by experts who have the end consumer in mind.
Why do we write what we write?
We write about health insurance, which is what we know best, and other topics we feel may help inform you about health insurance. Healthcare and Insurance are complicated topics that not many Americans really understand. We want to make sure that every single American has access to clear, easy to understand, and accurate information around their healthcare. Healthcare is a serious matter for many Americans and it’s a serious matter for us as well.
Every piece of content is written and reviewed with three core principles in mind.
- Accuracy: The healthcare and health insurance landscape is ever evolving and we want our readers to be armed with the most up to date and accurate information.
- Objectiveness: We know that healthcare is highly politicized but we don’t want that to affect your decision making. We aim to present all the information in an unbiased, down the middle manner by providing objective facts and options which the reader can ultimately use to make his or her own decisions.
- Usefulness: At the end of the day, we ask our writers and reviewers if they think a particular piece of content on our site is useful for our readers. If they would not recommend an article to a friend or family member, we will not publish it.
Our opinions and editorial decisions are made without influence from advertisers. But we may receive compensation from advertisers if you use our tools or join a plan after visiting our site.

We work with a range of insurers, financial experts, policy wonks, and even doctors to produce great content and recommendations. Our team of writers have been featured in the New York Times, Health Affairs, Forbes, Money.com, and many other amazing outlets.
We also utilize the knowledge and expertise of healthcare and health insurance professionals to review every single piece of content on our website.

How does Healthcare.com make money?
We make money by referring users to locally-licensed insurance agents after they’ve received a plan recommendation.
