Insurtechs Are Pulling Back Amid Financial Turmoil

Venture-backed Friday Health Plans will cease operating after several state regulators placed it into receivership due to its rocky finances. The Colorado-based insurer operated in seven states — Colorado, Georgia, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas — and as of December 2022 covered almost 400,000 enrollees, according to AIS’s Directory of Health Plans.

The insurtech, founded in 2015 with a focus on the Affordable Care Act exchanges, raised over $306 million in venture capital and debt funding. Yet in late 2022, it announced it would scale back from operating in seven states to five states, pulling out of Texas and New Mexico. In March 2023, it was placed into receivership in Texas and soon other states took similar actions.
