Amazon is one company that has had a lot of success lately and that is also thanks to its employees. However, we have seen that Amazon’s employees are not happy with their company as they need healthcare protection with their employment as well. Now, Amazon has launched a health care program for its employees which is named as Amazon Care. It must be noted that Amazon Care is not a physical clinic but a virtual one instead. While this is a virtual primary care clinic for Amazon employees, there is an option for nurses to visit employees in the home.
Amazon Care is described as “the best of both virtual and in-person care.” and the company says that it is currently a pilot program for its employees working in the Seattle area. Amazon has also set up a website for the same which can be accessed from Amazon.care. Amazon Care’s website shows that it is pitched as something that you don’t need to wait for. With the help of this website, you can get “high-quality virtual care”. Also, we have already mentioned earlier regarding the In-person visits at home or office. Apart from that, Amazon Care will get your prescriptions delivered to your door so that you don’t need to go out.
Amazon Care website lists all the following ways in which the service can help you:
- Urgent issues like colds, allergies, infections and minor injuries.
- Preventative health consults, vaccines and lab work.
- Sexual health services like contraception and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing.
- General health questions to help manage care for your whole family.
The website also reveals the eligibility criteria for who can apply to become a member of Amazon Care. Basically, all the Amazon employees who have health insurance plan, are 18 years of age or above and live and work in current service locations are eligible.
