What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

Hello all!

I am a practicing cardiologist in Brooklyn, NY. I have been asked a lot of different questions by patients, but the hardest one so far has been: "Doc, what insurance should I get?" The truth is, nobody really knows the answer to that question. With different medical insurance types, companies, plans, deductibles, copayments and so on, patients really need to do their research prior to signing up for a plan. The problem is - there is absolutely no way for patients to do that research!

So I am starting Plantruth.com! It will serve as the go-to medical insurance ratings website. People will be able to rate and discuss their medical insurance or view what other people (and medical providers) have stated about specific insurance companies and plans.

We have launched in February 2017 (in New York State), and we are planning to grow and become the number one source of ratings and information for health insurance plans in the entire United States!

Risks and challenges

In medicine, I deal with the unexpected every day of my life. The same way with the website. With the political environment changing, and the healthcare insurance industry constantly adjusting itself, keeping up with all the changes will be difficult.

However, only someone who has a lot of experience in dealing with insurance companies (such as a doctor) can really keep up and understand all the changes that are occurring in the industry.

Our aim is to always be on top of all the changes and really help people with their medical insurance plan needs.
