Health Made Easier
Today, we are excited to announce that Stride Health’s coverage recommendation engine is now easily accessible to drivers nationwide directly through the Uber Partner App. It’s now more seamless than ever to shop for and compare plans, find out which plans cover a driver’s doctors and are the most cost-effective for a driver’s unique profile. Drivers who are part of Uber’s Momentum Program will also receive a voucher through Stride Health this week, and can use it at over 8,000 pharmacies nationwide to get a free flu shot.
A year ago, Uber and Stride began piloting Stride’s health care recommendations and coverage enrollment engine in seven states. Since then, over 45,000 Uber partners have used Stride Health for guidance on a variety of health care needs, including finding a doctor, planning a visit, enrolling in coverage, and using the company’s recommendation engine to compare health plan options. The pilot also showed that two-thirds of Uber driver partners accessed Stride from their mobile device. And nearly half of drivers who have enrolled in health coverage through Stride did so on their phones.
As a result, this year, drivers nationwide will be able to access Stride’s product directly through the revamped Uber Partner App.
Uber’s partnership with Stride is part of Uber’s Momentum program, which also includes discounts on fuel, reduced vehicle maintenance costs; and discounts at top wireless carriers.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
