Comprehensive Healthcare Systems, Inc. (the "Company"), formerly known as Greenstone Capital Corp., was incorporated on June 6, 2018 and became a "Reporting Issuer" in each of the Provinces of Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario pursuant to applicable securities legislation on April 11, 2019.

On September 29, 2021, the Company completed a reverse takeover with Comprehensive Healthcare Systems Inc. ("CHS"), a Delaware "C" Corporation founded in 2015, providing healthcare administrative software, licensing and maintenance services to various interests in the healthcare industry, including insurance companies, hospitals, doctors and labor unions,. Pursuant to the reverse takeover, the Company changed its name to "Comprehensive Healthcare Systems Inc." and began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the stock symbol CHS. The head office of the Company is at 2025 Lincoln Highway, State Route 27 - Suite 340, Edison, NJ 08817, US. The Company's registered and records office is at 220 - 333 Terminal Avenue, Vancouver, BC V6A 4C1.

The Company's state of the art HPS NOVUS Healthcare Welfare and Benefits Administration ("HPS NOVUS") SaaS platform is used by clients for all aspects of healthcare benefits administration (including insurance companies, hospitals, doctors and labor unions) through various corporations in which the majority shareholder has controlling ownership, providing healthcare administrative software, licensing and maintenance services. This system simplifies how organizations and individuals transact benefits. The Company's customers rely on the platform to manage, scale and exchange benefits seamlessly. This creates solutions that drive value for all participants in the US. healthcare ecosystem.

The Company's upcoming Telehealth user-facing app will integrate the benefits administration ecosystem into one single platform. The Telehealth platform will be available on the web, and iOS and Android will be fully integrated with the HPS NOVUS platform. Any user can interact with doctors, clinics and hospitals in the Company's network. The app will allow its users to connect to most major electronic medical records databases, payment gateways and billing systems. All the records on the app will be encrypted giving full control to its users.

The US healthcare system is not a universally accessible system like Canada, and most insured Americans are under employer-sponsored health insurance. One variant of this is that the employees and the employers will jointly pay contributions into a healthcare fund, then the funds will be used to purchase a group insurance or a create a self-insured plan. Self-insured plans usually cost less for larger employers compared to traditional insurance policies, which incentivises a shift towards self-insurance. The daily operations of insurance claims, billing and other related procedures for self-funded insurance plans can be managed through "Third-Party Administrators" ("TPAs") or managed in-house. Under this structure, the industry operator is a software provider or TPA and is processes health benefit payments on behalf of clients.

TPAs play a critical role in the insurance market by enabling businesses to outsource claims processing, administration and risk management. When an employee uses a healthcare provider (such as a clinic, a hospital or a doctor), the employee can monitor their claim through a TPA. The TPA processes the claim after receiving the claim from the healthcare provider, and then pays out claims on behalf of the insurance plan. Generally and historically, TPAs are highly reliant on manual, labor- intensive procedures for claims processing. TPAs subscribe to various software to manage filing, as well as communication of claims, thereby reducing cost margins. Such software is typically designed to streamline operations, reduce process complexity and costs, manage compliance with new regulations and increase customer satisfaction. However, the industry is fragmented because different software is used for different steps in the claims process. Given that different software will use different mechanisms for filing, processing and reimbursement, there are several manual handoffs in the entire process. The industry is rapidly shifting towards cloud computing, in order to expand software capabilities on platforms previously limited by hardware. The industry is also striving to make data more accessible, which paves the wave for new business models, such as SaaS.

The Company's goal is to be a leader in the development, sale and maintenance of a sophisticated platform for all aspects of healthcare and benefits administration.

The Company can transform how employers, insurance brokers and insurance carriers deliver value for employees and their families. This is to be achieved by strengthening the Company's position as a leading cloud-based benefits management platform for buyers and sellers, working closely with insurance brokers as partners in the ecosystem. Key elements of the Company's growth strategy includes the following:

Any user can interact with doctors, clinics and hospitals.

The app allows its users to connect to most major electronic medical records databases, payment gateways and billing systems. All of the records on the app will be encrypted giving full control to the user. Every transaction from benefit to claim is now in one single system.

After completion of this transaction, the current shareholders of CHS would own the majority of the issued and outstanding common shares of the resulting issuer.

Each subscription unit is comprised of a common share of the Company and one-half of a share purchase warrant. Each share purchase warrant entitles its holder to acquire one share of the Company at $0.75 CAD. Following this transaction, the resulting issuer would be a publicly listed company.

After completion of the Transaction and concurrent private placement, on a non-diluted basis, the former holders of CHS shares will own approximately 66,237,286 Resulting Issuer shares, representing 96.97% of the shares of the Resulting Issuer.
