Bernard Health celebrates 10th anniversary
Bernard Health continues to see opportunity in the changing landscape of healthcare
Bernard Health is proud to announce its tenth year as a leading provider of health insurance advisory services to individuals, employers and brokers.
Since its founding in 2006, Bernard Health has grown from a home office to 13 locations in ten states and more than 75 employees. The company has expanded its value proposition into one of the broadest in the industry, with a proprietary HR software platform and industry-leading advisory and brokerage services.
The company began when founder and CEO Alex Tolbert learned about health savings accounts while a third-year JD/MBA student at Vanderbilt University. Facing the healthcare industry’s misaligned incentives, Tolbert and the Bernard team have worked hard to set the stage for a better health system.
Bernard Health helps answer individuals’ and employers’ toughest insurance questions by helping people directly and through channel partners such as brokers and healthcare providers.
The company’s noncommissioned insurance advisors have built a reputation on providing expert advice to individuals and families across the country who need help navigating the health insurance system. Bernard Health’s employer advisory unit does the same for businesses, who along with the company’s more than 20,000 BerniePortal users, reap the benefits of the leading web-based benefits platform for small to medium-sized employers.
Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Bernard Health continues to see opportunity in the changing landscape of healthcare. In the last 12 months, the company has landed several new strategic partnerships with broker and provider clients and positioned itself for a leading role in the online benefits sector.
In the second quarter alone, Tolbert has been named a Dig|Benefits Technology Innovator by Employee Benefit News and a 2016 Health Care Hero by the Nashville Business Journal. The company is looking forward to additional growth opportunities in the rest of 2016 and into next year. Bernard Health has big plans for the future and will continue to work toward its mission of being the world’s most trusted advisor when it comes to helping people plan for their healthcare.
