Vericred raises $23M Series B to create ‘quote-to-card experiences’

The fresh funding will help the benefits infrastructure company expand its teams, bolster sales and marketing and expand its customer base

Vericred, which provides a platform that enables health insurance and benefits digital quote-to-card experiences, has raised a $23 million Series B funding round led by Aquiline Technology Growth.

The round had participation from new investors including Echo Health Ventures, MassMutual Ventures, Guardian Strategic Ventures, and existing investors Riverside Acceleration Capital, FCA Venture Partners and First Health Capital Partners, according to a news release.

Vericred will use the capital injection to grow its teams in New York City and Omaha, Nebraska while also bolstering its marketing and sales efforts and growing its customer base.

The company provides a suite of APIs spanning medical, life, dental, vision and other types of coverage that power quoting, enrollment, member management and other services on Insurtech and BenTech platforms. Vericred aims to enable a “digital quote-to-card experience,” by removing barriers to digital transformation.

The company has over 300 carriers and more than 100 insurtech companies on its platform. Companies like Cigna, Guardian, Humana and MetLife are on its platform while insurtechs like Rippling, Gusto, Ease and Namely are also on it.

“We are excited to partner with these leading investors who share our vision for building a simplified way for all participants in the benefits ecosystem to connect, communicate, and exchange data rapidly and accurately,” Michael W. Levin, CEO and Co-founder of Vericred said in a prepared statement.

The company has also added two new board of directors, Max Chee who leads Aquiline Technology Growth and Jessica Zeaske, PhD who is a Partner at Echo Health Ventures.

“Aquiline’s investment in Vericred is rooted in our shared vision of a fully digitally connected employee benefits ecosystem, where plan quoting, enrollment, and renewal is a seamless experience, much like booking travel or applying for a new credit card online,” Chee said in a prepared statement.

Insurance comparison site The Zebra has raised a $150 million Series D funding round valuing the company at over $1 billion. The Austin-based company has raised more than $250 million to date and the round came from new and previous investors including Weatherford Capital and Accel, according to a press release.
