with podcast guest

Jeff Witten


Jeff Witten is the CEO and Co-Founder of Sheer Health, which will change how you deal with healthcare! Sheer Health demystifies health insurance, medical billing, and healthcare for individuals and families, and the platform enables you to connect your health insurance account to Sheer Health, just like how you connect your bank account to a service like Venmo or Paypal. It’s an app on your phone that takes 2-3 minutes to register and connect your insurance. The service is incredibly easy to use and is truly aligned with you and your interests in maximizing your benefits and saving time and money.

In this episode, we talk about my emergency surgery and the shocking hospital bill, the challenges many of us face navigating the opaque and often inefficient US healthcare system, the complexities of health insurance, protections for consumers, the financial burden of medical expenses, options for managing or reducing these expenses, and so much more!
