As one of the fastest growing technology companies in the United States, GoHealth has established itself as an influential leader in the health insurance industry and is the nation’s leading health insurance marketplace. With a full end-to-end service offering, GoHealth is able to offer a solution to not only individual consumers looking to purchase healthcare, but also independent agents looking to sell policies, as well as carriers looking to more efficiently acquire members.

NEP first invested in GoHealth in 2012 and saw an opportunity to invest in an industry leader and innovator in health insurance technology. NEP took a minority position in the company and partnered with the co-founders, Clint Jones, CEO, and Brandon Cruz, President, who started the company in 2001 after individually shopping for health insurance post-college and discovering that finding coverage, and understanding how to use it, was anything but simple.

In 2019, GoHealth was sold to Centerbridge Partners and post-close, NEP retained a rollover investment stake in GoHealth.
