Listen

Health insurance startup Bright Health has acquired telehealth company Zipnosis.

According to an April 5 statement from Zipnosis' financial adviser, both companies hope the deal will lower costs and increase patient access to care.

Zipnosis, a Minneapolis-based telehealth service, works with nearly 60 large health systems in the U.S. It screened and treated more than 2 million patients in 2020.

This isn't Bright Health's first acquisition this year. The insurer picked up Central Health Plan of California, a Medicare Advantage plan, in January.
