Making healthcare work.SM

Our work and service is based on honesty, integrity and the focus needed to make healthcare work for ordinary people. Founded in 1996 and based in Austin, Texas, The Karis Group is an award-winning healthcare professional services firm. We positively impact consumers’ experience with the healthcare system through excellent service and results.

A very important part of our organization is its guiding principles and why we exist.

  • First, our name “Karis” is from the Greek word that means “grace”.  You will always witness a certain grace and kindness with our employees, and in serving our clients, members, and in our overall approach to work.
  • Second, we base our business on Christian beliefs and a business model wherein we hold a higher purpose to our daily work beyond financial success. This includes setting aside 10% of our profits each month for charitable work in our community and around the world.
  • Third, we are very focused on making healthcare work for the individual and their family members.

Pure and simple, that’s why we exist.
