What is Sidecar Health?
Unlike traditional insurance, which sits between the patient and the doctor, our members pay for care directly. As a result, our members can see any doctor and may save 40% or more† on health care costs.
Simply put, Sidecar Health is insurance the way it should be:
- Affordable: Our members may save 40%† or more by paying doctors when they receive care using their optional Sidecar Health VISA benefit card.
- Transparent: Our members use the Sidecar Health member portal, available at member.sidecarhealth.com, to see the estimated Benefit Amounts their plan will pay for a medical service and compare that to what other Sidecar Health members have paid providers for services in their area.
- Easy to Use: Our members can see any doctor they want and upload claims easily on the Sidecar Health member portal. Our world-class Member Care team is also on standby every step of the way.
‡ Information on doctor and health care facility charges is not a recommendation or advice on which doctor or facility you should see. Members must perform their own research.
