Wellthie Bringing New Order to Buying Insurance
Sally Poblete, founder and CEO, spent her career at large insurance companies but she’s always had designs on starting her own company.
The uncertainty and tumult of the healthcare industry opened the door, leading Poblete to start Wellthie, an online resource for individual buyers of health insurance.
Poblete recently led the firm’s raising of a $5 million Series A, giving her four-year-old company the capital necessary to ramp up its offerings.
She says Wellthie is positioned to serve as an online tool that could make healthcare insurance policies easier to understand for individuals and small business owners.
In this interview with Breaking Health Podcast host Steve Krupa, Poblete likens Wellthie to Zillow, the online site that made real estate listings easier to access and understand.
