AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

“Sana has already entered Indiana AND Virginia this year and plans to continue expanding in 2022,” said Sana’s co-founder and CEO Will Young. “We are on a mission to make quality health care understandable, accessible and affordable to as many Americans as possible. Wisconsin there are more than one million small business employees and we are excited to offer them a better alternative to the same restrictive networks and high ‘negotiated fees’ that have dominated the market for decades.
The big insurers, inherited in Wisconsin may serve as an adequate option for enterprises with thousands of employees, but they have failed to provide smaller businesses with the support that their modest or non-existent HR teams require. Additionally, those employers have not been given access to value-based health care models proven to make employees healthier at lower costs.

Worse, 40% of small businesses reported that they would raise the prices of goods and services due to rising health care costs, according to a 2021 survey by Small Business for America’s Future.
For Sana, 35% of its new customers are small businesses that were previously unable to provide health care for employees, mainly due to high costs. Departure at Wisconsin adds more than one million employees who can benefit from Sana’s health plans.
