About Hint Health

Based in San Francisco and backed by top Silicon Valley investors, Hint Health is on a mission to fix the broken U.S. healthcare system by fundamentally changing the way that healthcare is delivered and paid for—starting with primary care.

Hint’s industry-leading membership management and billing platform gives forward-thinking healthcare providers the freedom to operate outside the inefficient insurance-based status quo by offering unlimited primary care services through affordable direct-to-consumer and direct-to-employer membership plans. This subscription-based model—known as Direct Primary Care (or DPC)—results in higher doctor and patient satisfaction, lower healthcare costs, and improved health outcomes.
