Our Story

Jon Hess and Ryan Malone founded Athos Health because they firmly believe that paying for healthcare should be fair and straight forward.

The two met at Deloitte and connected over their common goals and passion for helping people. The decision to combine forces came after noticing a persistent imbalance in the relationship between payers, providers, and patients—the patients were getting stuck between doctors and insurance providers and always seemed to be struggling to get help understanding their medical bills. It was clear to both Jon and Ryan that advocating for patients was the best way to bring about a meaningful change in the system… so they left, committed to fixing the way people pay for healthcare.

Now, Athos Advocates proudly help patients understand their benefit options and make confident decisions that make the most out of the programs available. Over the years Athos Health has evolved to offer solutions that keep pace with industry changes. However, the values that Athos Health was built on have stayed the same.
