Our Story

What is Trusty.care?

Why We Help

In the US, 10,000 people turn 65 every day. By 2030, the (aging) majority of the US population will need some form of managed care, and 80% of seniors and their caregivers will need a broker to help them finalize their care decisions in a way that saves costs and reduces risks.

Who We Help

We help health insurance professionals to support their clients with essential insurance decisions. We’re proud to be a nationally recognized leading InsurTech company working to ensure no beneficiary goes through bankruptcy because of healthcare costs.

How We Help

Trusty.care powers the entire sales process through a unified, digital platform and is the first comprehensive solution for Individual, Medicare, and Ancillary markets. By presenting the information in an easy-to-understand way, insurance professionals and their clients can find ways to navigate the complexities of the healthcare system more efficiently.
