What do we do?

SimplyInsured is 100% online health insurance for small businesses.

Getting a small business insured is no easy task. It takes 24-48 hours just to get a quote. You have to use a largely unhelpful broker. Everything about it just sucks - and causes a lot of unnecessary fear, confusion and pain.

That was the genesis of SimplyInsured - simple, 100% online health benefits for your small business. No paper. No fax machines. Just simple, easy-to-use, and easy-to-buy health insurance.

We have thousands of customers and are growing 15%+ monthly.
