Selected past performance


Ad Hoc has led the design, development, and product management of the public-facing portions of HealthCare.gov since 2016. Our team has built a reliable, user-centered public experience including the ability to see and compare plans, find local help, and ultimately enroll for healthcare.


Ad Hoc’s leadership in product management and user-centered design helped VA consolidate dozens of websites into a unified Veteran-centric online experience for America’s more than 20 million Veterans and affiliated users. VA.gov is a transformative project designed to increase access to VA information, benefits, and services for Veterans and affiliated users via a single portal.

VA API Development & Operations

Ad Hoc administers, builds, maintains, and improves an API platform that supports third-party development teams creating VA services. The team works collaboratively with VA.gov and a multitude of other private-sector teams to build modern, reliable, user-centered APIs toward the goal of creating a single online destination for developers to discover, understand, and build against VA's APIs.
