Free healthcare checkup for all!
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), only 33 percent of Indian health care expenditures in 2012 came from government sources. Of the remaining private spending, around 86 percent was OOP (out of pocket).
We at Uber are dedicated and deeply committed to enhancing people’s lives around the world, and healthcare plays a vital role in this process. Hence we’re happy to announce an extended partnership with Oxxy, India’s largest healthcare network which has over 100,000 centres including hospitals, diagnostic and pathological laboratories, spread across 1500 cities in India.
In March, Uber and Oxxy provided free rides to and from the healthcare centres, now this extended partnership will include free health checkups* and subsidised medical rates for OXXY’s gamut of services, for all Uber driver-partners and riders in 18 cities across India.
All you got to do is dial OXXY 09999-000-102 or log on to to their website to avail this service. The customer support team will be available 24×7.
Said Amit Jain, President, Uber India, “Healthcare plays a vital role in enhancing people’s lives, something Uber is dedicated and deeply committed to. Furthering our association with OXXY, I’m proud that we will now be able to provide quality and affordable healthcare to the millions of Uber driver partners and riders in the country, a problem that’s been persistent so far.”
Pankaj Gupta, Founder OXXY says “A 360 degree healthcare should have been started in the country long back. Goes without saying healthcare should be transparent, convenient and affordable for all. It’s the need of the hour. We are delighted to extend this partnership to include health benefits too, with Uber, a company that cares about healthcare, as much as we do.
*First medical checkup is free. Subsequent checkups will be highly subsidised.
Please Note: Health checkups include blood tests that comprise a combination of sugar tests, cholesterol, thyroid, eye, dental and BMI to name a few. The combinations might change depending upon the area and the city.
