Simplee Helps You Pay Less for Health Insurance and Actually Understand What You're Paying for [Video]
Simplee is a new web service that can help clarify your health insurance picture, aiding you in understanding the type of insurance you have, what it covers (in an easy-to-understand format), and other plans that can give you the same coverage for less money.

Health insurance isn't a terribly easy thing to understand, and the costs behind it are even more opaque. Most of us know whether we have it or not, and we hope our money is going to coverage we need. Simplee is sort of like the financial site Mint, but for healthcare.

For Simplee to work, you have to grant it access to your healthcare accounts and allow it to pull down your medical records. That won't sit well with a lot of people, but the service says they need the access to determine which insurance plans will actually work for you, your budget, and your medical history. Not everyone's insurance plans or healthcare providers currently support the service, but it's getting started much like Mint did: opening its doors to the public and adding supported healthcare companies and insurance providers over time.
