Matthew Mellor starts to tell the story of his company by joking that he’s a recovering actuary.
A lot of recovery programs don’t work; his definitely has.
Strenuus is building its future on helping companies navigate through the confusing choices they face when signing up or switching health plans under the ACA.
No wonder its mission statement was updated to include the following:
“We create snapshots of physician networks,” Mellor explained. “For example, we might be hired by a UnitedHealthcare to understand how their physician network meets the needs of their members in a certain market.”
The bulk of its work is with carriers. But Strenuus in the past couple of years has spent more time pursuing – and landing – accounts in the health insurance broker community.
