January 10, 2022 – Firefly Health today announced that it has been named by Fierce Healthcare as one of the 2022 Fierce 15 companies, designating it as one of the most promising healthcare companies in the industry.
Firefly has built a novel health plan for employers utilizing their proven care delivery model. Firefly’s virtual-first, “care and coverage” health plan offers small to mid-sized employers a solution to the overwhelming costs they face with traditional health plans. With virtual care from world-class physicians, intelligent navigation that connects members to virtual and in-person appointments with quality providers, and a care team that addresses physical and mental health needs, Firefly simultaneously lowers healthcare costs and improves health outcomes.
“Everyone deserves access to affordable, quality care rooted in empathy. We are excited to be taking on the tremendous task of taking back control over healthcare and addressing the financial strain it places on individuals and businesses.” - Fay Rotenberg, CEO
