Team InsureCare leverages BetterDoctor API to build new visual healthcare tool, wins Integrate 2015 Hackathon

SAN FRANCISCO — BetterDoctor is proud to honor the winners of the Integrate 2015 Hackathon, InsureCare, a visual application helping people to decide which insurance provider will give them an access to the largest network of best health care providers in their area. This tool, powered by the BetterDoctor API, helps people to compare plans. This is especially useful for consumers during open enrollment times or when people are moving to new cities or getting new jobs.

This women-led team focused on solving the common problem of finding a doctor that is in-network based on one’s insurance. For example, if one moves to a new city and discovers their current insurance does not cover any doctors in the area, they can quickly and easily identify the best insurance companies for their needs.
