Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (Contract) - Licensed in Colorado
Posted on Friday, September 22, 2023
Nomi Health was founded in 2019 as a direct healthcare company with a simple yet bold mission: rewire how we pay for healthcare and how it is delivered to provide affordable and accessible healthcare experiences we all deserve as employers, patients and providers. We’re rebuilding healthcare from the ground up, simplifying how healthcare is understood, paid for and delivered through a real-time, direct infrastructure.
Through our subsidiary Artemis Health, we have been helping 600+ self-funded employers analyze their benefits data to identify and act on opportunities to reduce cost, improve quality and drive member outcomes. We have identified billions of dollars of overspend and in partnership with benefits teams and their advisors, have helped launch direct action to improve care outcomes for their members.
Nomi’s journey is just starting in delivering disruptive healthcare solutions, in partnership with like-minded employers, public sector organizations, advisors (brokers/consultants), and payers/TPAs. We are dedicated to our mission to remove healthcare hurdles and rebuild healthcare the way it should have always been: for everyone.
We believe so strongly in accessible and affordable care that we continually find ways to give back. So far we’ve paid off $225 million in medical debt for 176,000 people, committed $1 million towards mental healthcare for frontline workers, and guarantee no-cost COVID testing for all American’s.
The system must change, and we’re the ones to do it. Join us on the journey.
