Costco Introduces New Benefit: Affordable Healthcare!

 

Recently, the healthcare startup Sesame announced a partnership with Costco to offer special discounted healthcare services to Costco members across all 50 states in the United States.

Key Highlights:

  1. Convenient healthcare services with most appointments available within 2 hours, reducing the long waiting times associated with traditional appointments.

  2. Online doctors are carefully selected to ensure high-quality medical care.

  3. Sesame Care doesn’t accept health insurance, offering lower prices by allowing direct cash payments.

 

Who Can Benefit:

  1. Uninsured Individuals

Sesame’s target audience includes the uninsured and those with high deductibles who need to pay in cash. Because it doesn’t require health insurance, Sesame’s online consultation service, in collaboration with Costco, is particularly suitable for parents, spouses, and children who are visiting the United States and traveling without insurance. As long as you’re a Costco member, you can help your loved ones schedule doctor appointments and get prescriptions through Sesame.

  1. People who are in urgent need of prescription drugs

    After an online consultation, doctors can typically prescribe common medications for conditions like asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and more. Specific medications may vary depending on healthcare providers, doctors, and patients’ conditions.

 

Costs:

  1. Online Primary Healthcare: $29.

  2. Health Check (Standard lab testing package and online follow-up consultation with a healthcare provider): $72.

  3. Online Mental Health Therapy: $79.

  4. Additionally, you can enjoy a 10% discount on all other Sesame services, including in-person appointments.

Healthcare Startup Company: Sesame

Sesame was founded in 2018 and established a unique healthcare marketplace that connects thousands of outpatient healthcare providers in all 50 states of the U.S. with American consumers seeking high-quality and convenient medical care, all at half the usual medical prices.

 

 

 

 

Key Points:

Sesame aims to meet the medical needs of both the uninsured and those with high deductibles by introducing market dynamics into the consumer healthcare sector. This competition encourages service providers to compete and serve patients without being limited by their insurance status, reducing healthcare costs and promoting price transparency while ensuring patients receive high-quality medical care.

Service providers on the Sesame marketplace include primary care physicians, nurses, and over 40 different types of labs and imaging centers. These services encompass virtual healthcare (like online consultations) and in-person medical care.

Sesame states that its marketplace connects consumers with over 10,000 healthcare service providers who accept cash payments and do not require or accept insurance. According to statistics, over 100,000 patients have found doctors and received treatment through Sesame.
