Healthcare Meets Technology

HandsFree Health was founded by healthcare executives with over 150 of combined experience. Our founders have managed some of the largest insurers in the country and helped to create a leading health advocacy company. Long time advocates for better health and consumer education Mike, Dan, Kelly and Eric founded HandsFree Health as a way to help consumers stay educated, engaged, and empowered in navigating the complexity of their personal health.

Knowing healthcare can be difficult to manage, HandsFree Health set out to package the benefits of the most advanced technology and databases into an easy to use platform. Mike and Dan’s experience at the highest levels of national healthcare insurers provides them with the unique knowledge and relationships required to develop the proprietary HandsFree Health platform used to make WellBe®. Understanding health insurance and how it should work for the average person has been the foundation for Mike, Dan, Kelly, and Eric’s success and the driving motivation for founding HandsFree Health.
