Alignment Healthcare Inc., an Orange-based Medicare Advantage insurance provider begun by John Kao in 2013, has filed a prospectus for an initial public offering.

“Alignment is a next generation, consumer-centric platform that is revolutionizing the healthcare experience for seniors,” the prospectus said. “We deliver this experience through our Medicare Advantage plans, which are customized to meet the needs of individual seniors across the United States.”

The company generated $959.2 million in revenue in 2020, up 27% from the prior year. Its net loss narrowed to $22.9 million from $44.7 million in 2019.
