WorkWhile and Curai Health announce partnership to provide free access to telehealth services to hourly workers

SAN FRANCISCO, April 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- WorkWhile, an hourly labor marketplace that connects workers to shifts through its mobile app, today announced it has selected Curai Health to provide free telehealth benefits to the most active workers on its platform in California. Launched last year, WorkWhile has connected workers to over 30,000 jobs during the pandemic in California and Texas.

WorkWhile, an hourly labor marketplace, announced it will provide free telehealth services for workers on its platform.

Curai Health is a mobile app that allows patients to talk to a doctor on demand. Patients can select their doctor to personalize their care, order prescriptions and lab tests, and receive personalized follow-ups and care plans. The Curai Health services will be available to the most active workers on the WorkWhile platform, free of charge.

"Our mission at WorkWhile is to be the best place for hourly wage earners to work. We are thrilled to be providing this innovative telehealth benefit to our most active workers free of charge. Having a doctor in their pocket will allow our workers to get the care they need on their own schedule," said Jarah Euston, co-founder and CEO of WorkWhile.

Demand for telehealth services has surged during the pandemic, growing 80% in the last year up to a $9.5B market. Telehealth has helped millions of Americans better access hig quality healthcare. "In a time where so many folks need access to healthcare, we're excited to be working with WorkWhile to make Curai available to their workers," said Neal Khosla, founder and CEO of Curai Health.

Workers on the WorkWhile platform can access the Curai Health benefit today directly from the WorkWhile app, and will maintain the benefit as long as they remain active on the WorkWhile platform. This is the first healthcare benefit WorkWhile is offering to its workers, who also receive next-day pay and sick pay credit.
