Simplee Makes Your Medical Bills Understandable

Health care is a mess in this country, especially the payments and insurance side of the equation. But as I mentioned in my last post on Brighter , a new group of startups are attacking the problem by giving consumers better information and tools to take control of their healthcare dollars. Let's call it DIY health reform . Another startup launching today in private beta, Simplee , is very much part of this movement. Just like with Mint and your financial accounts, you give Simplee access to your medical insurance accounts. It then brings in all of your medical, dental, and pharmacy bills and presents them in an easy-to-understand dashboard. Simplee tells your total medical costs, how much you've paid out-of-pocket, your deductible, and how many doctor's visits you and your family have had.
