For the fourth year in a row, FAIR Health received the Mark Gothberg eHealthcare Organizational Commitment Award, the highest honor of the eHealthcare Leadership Awards. The award recognizes industry leadership, innovation and commitment, according to the presenter of the awards, Plain-English Health Care.
For the second year in a row, FAIR Health’s corporate website, fairhealth.org, won a gold award for Best COVID-19 Pandemic Related Communications. FAIR Health received the honor in recognition of the numerous COVID-19 data studies and other free resources added to its corporate site to provide critical insights into the pandemic.
Both the English (fairhealthconsumer.org) and Spanish (fairhealthconsumidor.org) versions of FAIR Health’s free website for consumers won several awards. Both sites offer medical and dental cost estimates and educational resources about health insurance, as well as shared decision-making tools and a shoppable services tool. Both sites won an award for Best Overall Internet—FAIR Health Consumer a gold award and FAIR Health Consumidor a platinum award. Both versions won platinum awards for Best Internet Home Page and Best Mobile Website. In addition, FAIR Health Consumer won a platinum award for Best Healthcare Content.
A national, independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing transparency to healthcare costs and health insurance information, FAIR Health won its awards in the group classification of “Other Healthcare Sites” (i.e., other than sites of hospitals, healthcare systems and various other health-related classifications). A total of 111 judges—all experts in healthcare digital marketing—evaluated the entries for the 2021 eHealthcare Leadership Awards.
The healthcare sector has consistently recognized the importance and effectiveness of FAIR Health’s consumer resources. In addition to winning eHealthcare Leadership Awards every year from 2012 to the present, FAIR Health has received accolades from the White House, AHRQ, URAC, AppPicker, Employee Benefit News, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and other sources. FAIR Health was named a top resource for patients in Dr. Marty Makary’s book The Price We Pay: What Broke American Health Care—and How to Fix It and Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal’s book An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back.
FAIR Health President Robin Gelburd stated: “It is gratifying to be recognized once again by the healthcare sector for the effort and resources we dedicate to our consumer platform. FAIR Health continues to innovate in this field to help consumers navigate the complexities of the healthcare system.”

Certified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as a national Qualified Entity, FAIR Health also receives data representing the experience of all individuals enrolled in traditional Medicare Parts A, B and D; FAIR Health includes among the private claims data in its database, data on Medicare Advantage enrollees. FAIR Health can produce insightful analytic reports and data products based on combined Medicare and commercial claims data for government, providers, payors and other authorized users. FAIR Health’s systems for processing and storing protected health information have earned HITRUST CSF certification and achieved AICPA SOC 2 compliance by meeting the rigorous data security requirements of these standards.
