Tulsa’s KTUL Channel 8 News recently featured Medefy and its innovative concept to help self-insured employers lower health care costs.
Medefy is one of five startup companies that are part of the first i2E Tulsa Immersion Program currently under way.
Founded in 2012 by Matt Scovil and business partner Nathan Gilchrist, Medefy offers a proprietary software product designed to help businesses lower health care costs by guiding employees to the lowest cost providers.
“The program incentivizes employees to choose lower cost, higher quality care, which saves the employee money and it saves the company money,” Scovil told Channel 8. “You know the price of a gallon of gas, you know how much a loaf of bread costs, right, there’s no reason why you can’t know what an MRI costs or how much a checkup’s going to cost, or a hip surgery’s going to cost.”
