Angle Health to take growth strategy to next level
The funding round announcement follows the health insurtech’s recent expansion into Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, and South Carolina.
According to reports, Angle Health has an initial focus on the employer-sponsored health plan segment - which is currently estimated to be a $1.2+ trillion market covering over 155 million Americans.
Despite only launching in 2021, Angle Health has proved a popular choice and it therefore already providing protection for tens of thousands of members on its fully-insured and self-funded products since launching in 2021.
Speaking about the latest funding drive, Ricky Lai, Partner at lead investor Portage, explained: "Angle Health brings a customizable, fully digital solution to an industry dominated by rigid benefit plans, opaque underwriting, difficult switching costs, and siloed point solutions.
"Just as innovators like Kin and Lemonade have done for personal lines of insurance—Angle has made health insurance more convenient, approachable, and affordable for employers and members. "
Ty Wang, CEO of Angle Health, said: “We have an ambitious vision to unify the fragmented healthcare benefits system, which today severely limits access to, and availability of, modern healthcare services like telemedicine, digital behavioral health, and chronic disease management.”
He added: “Just as tools for navigation and ride-sharing have eliminated the need to read maps and street signs to traverse the physical world, Angle Health is eliminating the need for members to navigate the complexities of the healthcare system on their own, and empowering members to get care without breaking the bank."
