Hero Health was created to empower North Carolina employers to take back control of their health plans. CEO and Founder Patrick Long grew up in the Triad and now lives in the Triangle. He spent most of his career helping midsized businesses improve efficiency and grow EBITDA. Executives often asked him to help improve their employee benefits – but until he experienced health issues firsthand, Long was not aware of how pervasive these problems were.
His PPO ranked surgeons by distance and price – not quality or experience. With a few calls, Long discovered that the least expensive surgeon actually had the best outcomes, while the most expensive doctor performed the fewest procedures. This disconnect is built into the status quo PPO, which steer employees to the closest and more costly options. Long vowed to create a new plan for employers that would not only improve health outcomes, but also protect incomes for working people, their employers, and the top providers.
And so Hero Health was born.
