CareLinx is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Stride to bring insurance benefits to our caregivers. Stride is an insurance-based platform that helps its users find effective and affordable insurance plans. Together, we are going to help the CareLinx community of 300,000+ caregivers save time and money on health, dental, and vision insurance.
The benefits of being an independent caregiver setting your own hours, control of your choice in employers and schedule, and higher wages can be overshadowed by not being offered traditional benefits such as health, dental, and vision insurance. Oftentimes, this can be an obstacle to going completely independent. Your health is key to your livelihood as a caregiver. Now, with Stride, CareLinx caregivers are being taken care of.
Rising Health Care Costs and Rising Confusion
We all know that picking the right health plans can be confusing and frustrating. As prices continue to rise, picking the right plan has never been more important, or more stressful and confusing. There are deadlines to meet, tons of plans to compare, subsidies to qualify for, and a million confusing terms. People who work for themselves face complicated application processes and often pay more than they should for health insurance because they aren’t familiar with subsidies that can decrease their costs. More often than not, they’re left with no guidance when it comes to making these important decisions, and that means spending a lot of time trying to figure out health insurance, time that could be better spent providing home care.
Stride makes it easy for caregivers to find health coverage that fits their needs. CareLinx’s caregivers will answer a few questions, receive a tailored plan recommendation, find out what moneysaving subsidies they are eligible to receive, and get enrolled in coverage, all within 10 minutes.
Going Beyond Health Insurance
Stride won’t only be helping the caregivers on CareLinx’s platform with health insurance. Through Stride, caregivers can easily sign up for dental and vision plans. Stride also has a liveperson concierge team to help caregivers get answers to their questions.
We’re confident that access to insurance benefits will make our caregiver community healthier, happier, and better able to do what they love.
