"WHAT
IS HEALTH
INSURANCE?"
How a health technology CEO is reinventing
insurance by fostering an innovation-focused
company culture.

In the late 90s, when I started my master's
degree at the Rochester Institute of Technology,
I remember walking into an office where a
woman gave me a card and said, "Here is your
health insurance from Mutual of Omaha." And I
asked, "What is health insurance?"
I was a young graduate student straight out of
India, and the person who gave me the card had
to explain to me that if I had a health issue, I just
needed to take this with me to the hospital or
the clinic and then the insurance company
would take care of the cost or part of the cost.
For more detailed information on

my coverage, I would need to call a 1-800
number - back then, there was no way for me to
get details about my plan without talking to a
human being.
Twenty years later, I'm still asking that same
question - what is health insurance? - but now
in a more profound way, as CEO of Thryve
Digital Health, a technology company working
to expand the possibilities of insurance services.
It's a broad question, but then again, we have a
big mission: to make the $3 trillion health care
economy more efficient and ultimately to
improve the quality of life for every health care
consumer.
