An Insider's view of GoHealth

How does your team reward individual success?

I went through virtual on-boarding, yet leaders across the organization have already found ways to value my contributions and help me apply insights to the business. The opportunity to work together towards the shared mission of improving access to healthcare in America is a reward in and of itself.
