Sana has made strides in recent years to improve its health service and insurance offerings to the communities it serves.

Located in Austin, Sana MD provides employees with access to $0 comprehensive onsite primary care, urgent care, labs and care coordination, as well as virtual primary care. Sana has also announced partnerships with Bloom and Carrum Health, making this partnership with Little Otter the latest expansion to the growing Sana Care ecosystem.
“This latest partnership with Little Otter is a huge step forward in our mission to make the highest quality health care available to everyone,” said Sana co-founder and CEO Will Young. “With 50% of mental health disorders appearing before the age of 14, this partnership fills an important role for Sana members, expanding access to mental health services for kids 0-14 as well as support for their families.”
