Eligible

Eligible is a medical billing company founded in 2011 that aims to make it easier for patients to predict how much their health insurance will pay and how much they will pay out of pocket prior to visiting their doctor.

Founder Katelyn Gleason was previously an actress and theater major and previously worked for drchrono which provides an Electronic Health Record and Electronic Medical Record (EHR/EMR) platform for medical practices. Gleason aimed to replace the system of manually validating insurance eligibility through employees by phone with automated client-based software and an API. Gleason designed and developed the front end of her iPhone app and received assistance from a family friend for iOS implementation.

Eligible was in Y Combinator’s Summer 2012 class and participated in the RockHealth 10/01/12 cohort.
