Amazon has expanded Amazon Care in a bid to offer virtual healthcare across the US for its employees and US based employers in the summer. Amazon Care will be available for other companies in Washington starting today.
The components that'll go national include virtual care via the Amazon Care app as well as in-person care. Amazon Care can dispatch a medical pro for blood work, additional care, primary care, and prescription delivery.
Amazon trialed Amazon Care with its employees and their families in Washington. Starting today, Amazon Care will be available to other Washington-based companies.
Beginning this summer, Amazon Care will be available to Amazon employees across the US, as well as US based employers.
With Amazon Care, Amazon is extending its reach -- as well as its AWS footprint -- into new markets. Amazon Care will be offered across the US to Amazon employees, and will open up as a benefit for other employers as well. If you play this out, Amazon Care could serve as a health benefits platform for other companies to subscribe to. Amazon has been targeting healthcare as a growth market ripe for disruption.
