Nomi Health Deepens Texas Roots, Opens Austin Regional Office on Track to Change the Way Healthcare Works in Texas and Beyond

AUSTIN, TX-(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nomi Health, the direct healthcare company making it easier than ever to access the highest quality affordable care in the US, is celebrating the grand opening of its regional office in Austin, Texas. Nomi Health’s Austin location is one of four offices opening nationwide as the company rapidly expands to meet the extraordinary demand from organizations that turn to them for innovative healthcare delivery support and solutions for payment.

“Texas is my home and home to nearly 60 Nomi Health employees in our Austin office and other dedicated team members throughout the state. From the capital to the border, the largest cities and the smallest, we are deeply committed to helping Texas thrive by reshaping the way care is paid for and delivered, said Bo Hartman, co-founder and chief technology officer of Nomi Health. “Whether we’re administering vaccines against COVID-19 and monkeypox or advocating for radical changes in health care policy, we’re driven to improve health care across the country, and we plan to continue to grow our presence here to do so.”

Nomi Health’s direct delivery model creates a “third lane” in the health care system that delivers care to people directly through inpatient clinics and mobile care units—a massive shift from America’s decades-old standard of having people seek care. Texas has been central to Nomi Health since May 2021, when it partnered with the Texas Department of State Health Services to provide free, no-burden testing for COVID-19. The company served more than 115,000 Texans during the first eight months of the pandemic with its comprehensive community testing solution and provided the state with critical data, enabling leaders to make real-time decisions about the COVID response. To date, Nomi Health has provided nearly 200,000 COVID tests and 20,000 COVID vaccines nationwide and continues to serve uninsured patients more than a year after federal reimbursements ended, offering direct testing to residents at no cost, whether they are insured or not.

In addition to directly providing care, Nomi Health also works at the Texas Capitol to help shape health care policy, including the passage last session of the Texas Gold Card bill, which reduces prior authorization requirements and helps patients get treatment , what they need, when they need it.

As part of its commitment to supporting causes in the communities where its employees live and work, Nomi Health is celebrating its grand opening in Austin with a $30,000 donation to the University of Texas at Austin’s Day of the Girl program, designed to introduce middle school girls with exciting careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. In Central Texas, Nomi also supports CASA of Travis County, donates much-needed infant formula to Any Baby Can, and partners with Austin Independent School District, South by Southwest, Austin City Limits, and The Long Center for Performing Arts to provide non- worth testing for COVID. Across the state, the company is sponsoring free therapy and mental health services through Tava Health for frontline health workers in Texas and the community of Uvalde following the school shooting tragedy.

Nomi Health is looking for people who want to make healthcare affordable and accessible to all. View open positions in Austin and across Texas and the US at www.nomihealth.com/careers.
