A big part of helping Dashers meet their goals is making sure they’re set up for success, on and off the road. When health concerns arise, it’s important that they don’t become an obstacle. That’s why we’ve partnered with Stride, an individual benefits platform, to help you find a healthcare plan that fits your needs. With Healthcare Open Enrollment happening right now, there’s no better time to give Stride a try.
From November 1st, 2021 through December 15, 2021 — the U.S. Open Enrollment Period — you can sign up for or change your 2022 health insurance. This time is especially important for independent contractors, who are responsible for their own coverage. And while some may think a healthcare plan feels unnecessary, safety is always a priority. Remember, it’s better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
Take Amber, a Dasher who upon becoming an independent contractor was feeling uneasy about finding affordable health insurance, and even more so about not having it. After all, part of being a responsible driver is being safe and insured, through and through.
"I went to Stride’s site, and it literally took me not even 20 minutes to go through the entire process from start to finish. I plugged in all of my information, and next thing you know, I was paying under $50 a month for health insurance instead of $400 a month."
Right after she enrolled, Amber called her cousin, ecstatic to share that she could confidently continue to dash, thanks to feeling properly protected. “I felt like it was my saving grace moment,” she recalled. “I was also able to get affordable dental insurance through Stride, and now I’m getting emails about other benefits Stride offers, like life insurance, roadside assistance, and savings on gas. Stride is ahead of the game and is really helping independent workers through these offerings.”
So this open enrollment season, join Amber and countless other Dashers and independent contractors who have found major value in Stride. All it takes is about 10 minutes and answering a few basic questions to get tailored, affordable options for you and your family.
