Over 65,000 Lives Improved

Care for Everyone

Jiseki believes it’s possible to make affordable health benefits available to everyone on earth, and we’ve built a game-changing platform to make it happen.

How? By combining human expertise across both clinical and non-clinical drivers of health – doctors, nurses, lawyers, financial advisors, mental health experts, dietitians, and others – and the power of automation and AI, and delivering this combination through SMS and other text platforms. It’s advice access and first-level help for all of life’s challenges offered as a single, integrated package costing just a few dollars a month, with premium consult options available.

The Jiseki benefit package is structured to operate completely outside of American health insurance. It’s a win-win-win for

  • Companies interested in lowering their health care costs and keeping their employees productive and happy
  • Systems looking to lower their cost to serve by keeping inexpensive problems from becoming expensive
  • People looking for convenient, affordable, whole-person care, whether or not they have health insurance
