What is Bernard Health? We’re a fast-growing benefits startup based in Nashville, Tennessee, and our mission is to be the world’s most trusted advisor when it comes to helping people plan for their healthcare.
Bernard Health History
Founder and CEO Alex Tolbert started Bernard Health during his studies at Vanderbilt University after learning about the healthcare industry’s misaligned incentives. The company was founded with the idea of using Health Savings Accounts to better align the industry and help consumers. Nine months later, Alex’s brother Brian joined the team, and things really got going.
Since then, our team has worked hard to grow the company and its value proposition. In 2008, the company launched our proprietary benefits and HR platform BerniePortal, which now has more than 115 licensees across the country. We have regional offices in Nashville, TN, Indianapolis, IN, Austin, TX, and Atlanta, GA, and broker, provider, and financial advisor partners around the country.
