We are building a healthcare system that makes sense

We are a team of health care nerds, software engineers, product designers, direct primary care doctors, health insurance experts, and more.

We believe that unrushed conversations with doctors can lead to better health and lower costs for patients, so we created health plans that enable members to have free and frictionless access to a dedicated doctor they know and trust.
Our Values
Be a DPC
We are entrepreneurial, passionate, and deliver care to our communities — just like the Direct Primary Care (DPC) doctors we partner with.
Start with why
We are driven by curiosity and challenge assumptions to create solutions from first principles.
Progress over perfection
We are thoughtful doers and consider the cost of inaction.
Pick up the phone
We listen, serve, and delight others with empathy, humility, and positivity.

Where does the name “Taro Health” come from?

Taro (commonly pronounced "tare-o" or "tarr-o") is a starchy vegetable originally cultivated in Asia but now enjoyed around the world. We named our company after the taro root as a nod to the following:

  • We are fixing the root causes of the healthcare system, including foundational problems of access, cost of care, and physician burnout.
  • We believe having a close relationship with a doctor you trust should be at the root of your care, and that we can't rush these visits. The taro root must be cooked thoroughly to be eaten, and we believe that many great things in life need time.
  • The taro root is an excellent source of nutrients and fibers that have been linked to improved heart health, blood sugar levels, body weight and gut health.
  • Oh, and we also thought a purple brand would look cool and could actually secure the domain name :)
