The idea for HealthEquity, one of the nation’s largest health savings custodians, was germinated in a class at USU during Steve Neeleman’s sophomore year. “I took this class, medical sociology, taught by Reed Geertsen, and it really opened my eyes to the cost of healthcare and our system of health insurance,” recounted Neeleman. After graduating from Utah State, where he also played football, he went on to the University of Utah Medical School. After juggling two careers, as a surgeon and running HealthEquity for more than a decade, Steve gave up practicing surgery about 18 months ago to focus his time and energy to building HealthEquity.
