The additional infusion of capital will allow Lively to further invest in our industry-leading, consumer-centric platform and foster more relationships with America’s top financial institutions. It will enable us to expand Lively’s offerings to encompass all of the healthcare and financial tools Americans need to maximize their finances and overall livelihood.

Lively will continue to offer a personalized and modernized version of healthcare spending with tailored customer service and unique partnerships not found anywhere else in the industry. We started by putting the consumer first and as we grow we are committed to continue to drive value for them and empower all of Lively’s users to confidently embrace a healthy future.
