We help people make smart decisions about their health, benefits, and finances. We do that by breaking down these stressful topics with clarity, humanity, and humor. We make videos, interactive webpages, and the occasional t-shirt, but we’re best known for our conversations: online experiences that simulate a conversation with a real person that asks questions, remembers answers, and offers personalized guidance with a bit of personality. That’s ALEX.

ALEX is used by more than 1,500 companies with more than 18 million employees in total, who altogether spend more than $115 billion in health insurance premiums each year. ALEX offers those employees guidance in choosing the best plan for their needs, and their wallets.
