About us

<aside> ✂️ We cut the red tape between patients and medicine. Our mission is to make health care easy to use for everyone, starting with prescription medication.

See the impact we’re having today: Patient Stories from tandem


Health care in the US often feels impossible, especially when you need to use insurance. Just figuring out what benefits you’re entitled to requires hours of back-and-forth. It’s so common that healthcare researchers gave it a name: sludge. When dealing with serious health issues, you have no choice but to waste your energy battling the system to get what you need.

The problems show up most acutely and consistently with complex medications – these drugs make up 25%+ of all healthcare spend because they're the only way to treat many serious conditions. Unfortunately, they’re unaffordable without insurance, and the paperwork to get them approved takes weeks, if not months. A Washington Post reporter captured the experience poignantly in an article earlier this year.

Thanks to recent developments in healthcare data regulation and AI, we are changing this: tandem helps patients get life-changing medicine as quickly and cheaply as possible, handling all the complexity of insurance, financial assistance programs, and pharmacy supply & network issues*.* Behind the scenes, we are also supporting research and development of new therapies. And the same regulatory and technological developments will allow us to drive similar change for other categories of healthcare – we are building a company to abstract away all the complexity of health insurance for anyone.

Our initial product is live today with ecstatic feedback from patients and doctors, and we now need help scaling. Join us to prevent people who need treatment from getting caught in the red tape!
