The open enrollment period for Medicare started on Friday, October 15th and will continue through early December. For the 60M+ Americans, this is a critial period where they can make changes to and add/drop coverage. For most Americans, navigating the 24,000+ options available is a difficult and arduous process without help. Chapter is a Medicare advisory platform that uses a blend of technology and a trained team of advisors to decipher all plans at a microscopic level, ensuring that members are able to enroll in the plans that are best suited for their needs based on cost and coverage. Typically, Medicare advisors are incentivized by insurance companies to enroll members and naturally, these advisors steer members towards plans that offer the best compensation; often creating a misalignment. Chapter’s advisors are all full-time employees that are not compensated directly based on commissions. Combining this dynamic with plan data that Chapter’s technology generates, members are confident that are receiving unbiased and impartial recommendations. AlleyWatch caught up with Chapter CEO and Cofounder Cobi Blumenfeld-Gantz to learn more about the inspiration for the business, the company’s future plans, and latest round of funding from Narya Capital, Susa Ventures, Maverick Ventures, XYZ Venture Capital, Core Innovation Capital, and Health2047 Capital Partners.
