Alex Fair, CEO, FairCareMD
When Alex tried to get a fair price for check-ups for his kids with no insurance, he found he was being charged five times as much as his old insurance company. So he designed and built FairCareMD, an online automated Direct Provider Access platform that lets patients comparison shop, negotiate, and contract for care. Alex has also recently taken over the NY Health 2.0 Chapter. And, yes, that is his real name.
