You can use your employer contributions to enroll in Sidecar Health or you can add this on as a voluntary benefit.
We’re on a mission to change the way people think about health care and are turning the traditional approach to health insurance on its head. Instead of limiting patients to narrow networks, our members have the freedom to see any doctor they like. Instead of patients not knowing what services cost, we empower members with tools and information so they can make smarter decisions while sparing their pocketbook. Instead of healthcare providers getting reimbursed by the insurance company, our members pay for care directly using a Sidecar Health VISA card and often get price discounts offered to self-paying patients. The result: members are in control of their care, save money and avoid harsh surprise bills.
When a member enrolls, we send them a Sidecar Health Visa card they use to pay their healthcare provider directly. Through our app, members shop around for care knowing their coverage and benefit amounts as well as prices charged by local healthcare providers. Each member’s card is linked to their app so when a member incurs a healthcare charge, finalizing the claim is as easy as taking a picture of the invoice and submitting it through the app. Because we remove the administrative overhead associated with big insurance, members save 40% or more* compared with traditional plans.
Here’s how it works.
See links below for additional details. Ask HR for the link to enroll so that your cost can be through payroll deductions.
