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.

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.
